Proof Load Testing of Lifting Equipment

LOLER, PUWER, buyer specifications and equipment standards require that lifting equipment is proof load tested and certified before first use. The proof load test is specific to each piece of equipment and will generally involve the application of a load in excess of the SWL and a thorough examination of the equipment and its operation.
