Lifting Equipment Inspector

A lifting equipment inspector carries out vital checks to ensure that equipment and machinery used for lifting is in working order, so construction projects can be carried out in line with strict health and safety guidelines. If equipment is found to need repairs, they will carry out this work, or recommend a more qualified engineer for the job.

How to become a lifting equipment inspector

You can complete a training course to become a lifting equipment inspector. Under guidelines, any capable person with experience can carry out inspections, if they hold an industry-standard qualification from the Lifting Equipment Engineers Association (LEEA).

Although this role requires a certain qualification, many employers are more interested in people who are enthusiastic, willing to learn and can follow instructions.

You may need a Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) card to work on a construction site.
