At LR we understand that lifting operations can be a high risk area in any project. Safe and continual performance of lifting equipment crucially depends on controlling risk. The root cause of 59% of lifting incidents was attributed to a human factor with 33.3% being caused by equipment failure.
Our asset integrity lifting services provide you with expertise to help mitigate this risk and enhance safety. We help ensure your lifting equipment is designed, manufactured and built in accordance with industry standards and regulatory requirements, and that it operates safely and efficiently throughout its life.
What we offer
Lloyd’s Register’s lifting integrity team provides a broad range of services for your lifting and mechanical handling equipment, from certification through to consultancy on Asset Life Extension (ALE).
You can be faced with a myriad of challenges during day to day operations, failure or issues with lifting devices can not only pose safety risks but can also significantly delay projects or work scopes.
Our experts apply a risk based approach and can advise you on a wide spectrum of lifting devices, from a large crane to a pad eye, across the entire subject matter, from structural aspects through to wire rope selection. We have extensive experience in the UK, overseas and offshore across a variety of working environments, from subsea, construction, and pipe-lay vessels, to offshore drilling installations and production platforms, wind farms, construction sites and fabrication shops.
