What do the HSE Guidelines say about Gym Inspections?


The Health and Safety Executive recommend that gym equipment should be inspected daily for signs of wear and tear or damage, and thoroughly inspected at least annually (depending on usage) as part of a maintenance regime. There are also legal obligations under the PUWER regulations and the Health and Safety at Work Act. 


Insurers usually require that equipment is maintained and inspected and will ask for evidence of this in the event of an accident claim (for example, if someone were to be injured while in your gym and make a claim against you).

Northwick's maintenance programme satisfies the legal requirement for a recognised "maintenance regime" and provides you with documentary evidence that your equipment has been "thoroughly inspected" by an recognised industry expert.
Besides health and safety & insurance there is also a commercial benefit to be gained from regular maintenance including optimising the equipment performance and ensuring the maximum equipment life (for the least amount of expenditure).

Our Engineers are trained to help and advise you about your ongoing machine repair strategy by taking into account of how the equipment is used and how often it is used so that you make much better informed decisions.



Why use Northwick?
Our approach is unique because we are able to establish why problems occur so as to help you predict failures before they happen. Thus, Northwick can offer you expert opinion as to how best to prioritise and schedule equipment repairs and help you to differentiate between repair versus replacement. You gain a detailed picture of your equipment condition which can help you to stay the right side of the law, retain members, manage your cash flow and effectively plan for equipment replacement.
