AIR RECEIVER INSPECTIONS
Air receiver inspections are mandatory under OH&S legislation across Australia. We can help you maintain compliance and ensure employee safety allowing you to focus on other responsibilities.
Did you know that all air receivers larger than 100 MPa.L* must be inspected at minimum intervals by law?
• External air receiver inspection every 2 years
• Internal air receiver inspection every 4 years
Failure to carry out and document air receiver inspections at the minimum intervals leaves plant owners legally liable in the event of vessel failure which causes injury.
Southern Cross Compressors offers a complete air receiver inspections service to ensure you stay compliant with all legislation and importantly ensure all air receivers are safe.
The occupation Health & Safety (Plant) regulations 1995, states that employers have an obligation to ensure that “plant is inspected to the extent necessary to ensure that the risk associated with the use of the plant is monitored.” Worksafe Victoria or NSW does not perform mandatory inspections of plant.
It is the responsibility of the owner of the plant to ensure that the plant is maintained in a safe condition and that these necessary inspections are performed.
