AusStandard BLT can service and test most makes and models of patient lifters and hoists. Like all commercial lifting equipment, these must be tested to 100% of their Safe Working Load (SWL) annually We test all emergency operation mechanisms, switches and cords. We remove and inspect the main pivot pins or bolts to lubricate before refitting or replacing. We operate all functions and complete any minor repairs. We visually inspect wheels and operationally test brakes. An inspection of one sling is included with each equipment inspection. We load test to the equipment's SWL (Safe Working Load). This is an Australian Standards requirement for all lifting equipment.
