Specialist Insurance for Lift Owners
Robert Gerrard has been taking care of the insurance needs of the lift industry for over three decades. As the leading lift insurance broker in the UK serving more than 500 policyholders, it is important to us to continue to expand the ways in which we can be of assistance to our clients, which is why we have developed the Robert Gerrard Lift Inspection Plan.
Peace of Mind, Legal Compliance
Wherever there is a lift, there is a legal duty to ensure its safety. This duty comes under the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER) and the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER) and it calls for periodic thorough examinations by a Competent Person.
If you have a passenger lift on your premises, examinations are required twice a year. For any other type of lifting equipment, it’s once a year. These examinations are required in addition to routine lift maintenance, and failure to conduct them could lead to fines and civil and criminal prosecution.
Tailored Cover, Complete Clarity
It can sometimes be a challenge to find a Competent Person who complies with Health and Safety Executive (HSE) guidelines. They will need enough experience and knowledge to evaluate the risk of faults and weaknesses in lifts, and they have to be completely independent of anyone who takes care of your routine lift maintenance.
Our plan provides a lift inspection service with a panel of insurers that is compliant with the relevant laws. It includes the required twice yearly inspections by a UKAS accredited Competent Person who complies with all necessary legal guidelines.
As with all Robert Gerrard insurance plans, this cover comes without small print so that you can be thoroughly clear on the finer detail. And of course your dedicated Lift Inspection Plan expert is on hand to ensure the cover is fully tailored to your needs.
