Taking the Pressure Off Workshop Safety
This entry was posted on 1st August 2017.
Did you know that we can provide drawings and Written Schemes of Examination (WSE) to enable you to comply with the Pressure Systems Safety Regulations 2000 (PSSR)?
We have been providing this service for major users of compressed air systems for many years. We help garage managers and industrial businesses take the mystery out of the Pressure Systems Safety Regulations (PSSR) by assisting our customers to comply with their statutory duty.
The myth is insurance companies must carry out your statutory examinations, but this is not the case. Best practice is for an independent body to provide this service. Do you receive an annual charge with a biannual visit? You are not alone. Some companies will charge annually for the service they provide and attend site every other year.
Not with Gott Technical Services! With a comprehensive service and annual visits, which are only charged after a visit, we provide value for money to all our customers. Take the stress out of your obligations and let us lighten the load and take you step by step through your duty and provide a service that is second to none.
Written Scheme of Examination
A “Written Scheme of Examination (WSE)” is a document that details items within a pressure system that necessitate examination by a competent examiner / person.
These items cover a wide range of products and pressure equipment that are installed into a pressure system.
What is covered under a Written Scheme of Examination?
Pressure storage units:
This includes air receivers, boilers, autoclaves, gas cylinders and pressure cookers.
This includes pressure gauges, safety valves, pipework, level indicators and pressure and temperature switches.
This is NOT an exhaustive list and a competent person must be employed to certify and establish items for inclusion to a written scheme.
