Safety inspection of electrical equipment

We reliably test the integrity of your electrical equipment. In a meeting with you, we will discuss any measures that may be necessary to maintain or restore the safety and reliability of your electrical equipment according to relevant accident prevention regulations and codes of practice. In this way, we help you to ensure compliance with all safety regulations.

Legal background

Employers are obliged to ensure that electrical equipment is in good operating condition before it is put into service and at regular intervals. Electrical equipment as defined by relevant accident prevention regulations includes all equipment that can be used as a whole or as individual parts for the application of electric power or for the transfer, distribution and processing of information. Furthermore, it also includes plant and installations that are created by combining electric equipment. They are considered to be safe if there is no direct or indirect danger of personal injury if they are correctly operated and used as intended. Their "safe condition" also includes any protection required against external factors.

Recommended regular inspections

Inspection intervals must be selected to ensure that any defects that occur can be detected in good time. Property insurers and Demag recommend regular inspections for cranes. The inspection must be carried out by a qualified electrician in accordance with all relevant electrical regulations. Occupational accident insurance organisations, such as the Industrial Employers' Mutual Insurance Association in Germany, also require tests and inspections to be recorded with entries specifying when inspections are carried out.
