The Challenge

Bespoke handling and lifting solutions are invariably designed to meet highly specific – and often highly challenging – use cases. Their function and operation is governed by a range of Health & Safety regulations, including PUWER, LOLER, PSSR, SMR and more.

And in the nuclear sector, mechanical handling and lifting often forms part of ONR safety cases and site licence conditions, which demand that equipment is regularly maintained and thoroughly assessed.

The Solution

SCX Special Projects has a team of in-house engineers covering the multiple disciplines of mechanical, electrical, hydraulic, controls (EC&I) and safety. And SCX's on-site installation engineers have an enviable track record of commissioning bespoke handling and lifting solutions of all shapes and sizes.

Whether your equipment needs assessing, servicing, repairing, refurbishing or upgrading, you can call on our team to bring their expertise to you. We can also design a servicing and maintenance plan tailored to your specific needs – reducing the risk of downtime, improving cost control and visibility, and keeping your processes running.

Read on to find out more about the service and maintenance work we do for our customers.

Staying safe and legal

Industrial machinery carries with it a number of obligations for its owners – known as the duty holders.

The more risk associated with the equipment and its use, the greater the duty holder's obligations.

Mechanical handling and lifting equipment is generally covered by PUWER and LOLER regulations. If pressurised systems such as hydraulics and pneumatics are involved, then PSSR applies too.

And if it's operating on a nuclear site, ONR licence conditions and a related safety case will also be in force.

SCX is a member of LEEA and also a RoSPA Gold Award winner. Our service engineers are familiar with all relevant regulations, and will ensure that your equipment – and your business – remain safe, reliable and compliant.
