AME inspectors assessed certain plant and equipment to ensure compliance with relevant standards and regulations, particularly equipment involved in high-risk activities such as cranes. Australian Standards lifting equipment inspections were carried out by experienced personnel.

AME’s Managing Director and Chartered Professional Engineer Trevor Hughes identified these high-risk items of plant as particularly important in requiring regular inspection in accordance with applicable legislation and standards.

“High risk plant and equipment should be inspected by all personnel before they are used, and regularly inspected by the experts to ensure safety of all samsung CTmine personnel and equipment.” says Trevor.
