The Safety Assessment Federation (SAFed) and INITA companies examine well in excess of 210,000 vehicle lifts each year and whilst in the majority of cases these lifts are of good quality and well maintained, an increasing number of vehicle lifts are giving a cause for concern.

This document has been produced to draw the attention of vehicle lift operators (duty holders) to their legal responsibilities and to identify a common approach to the Thorough Examination of vehicle lifts by Competent Persons (generally an Engineer Surveyor).

This document can be viewed by members only by clicking here - and looking for the section entitled 'Vehicle lifts'.
