  • Airside Thorough Examinations

    Airside Airport Equipment is the first company in the UK to offer full safety examinations for ground side equipment.

    Fork Lifts and hoists have long been subject to LOLER inspections but we identified the need for greater safety levels on other ground side equipment, particularly anything passenger handling.

    In consultation with the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) we have established clear, definitive procedures and consistent standards that will eliminate poorly maintained equipment that could lead to expensive aircraft damage.
