What we do

From initial assessment and design, through to installation, operation, and inspections, we ensure all aspects of your requirements are catered for.

Our Customer Support Team are on hand to answer any questions you may have, and with a maximum call out time of 2 hours (within designated areas) you can best rest assured we will respond to your needs as quickly as possible.

Site Survey

Every site, whether it be in construction, petrochemical, re-furbishment or general building, is different.

Aspects such as space, heights, loading, off loading, type of goods to be transported, and how you plan to power the hoist needs to be considered.

As part of our service, we are happy to carry out a free, full and thorough site survey to establish exactly what your requirements are, and subsequent pre-start site meetings to ensure all aspect of your  installation runs smoothly.

Operator Familiarisation

To ensure that the site personnel who use our hoists are completely conversant with their responsibilities as hoist operators, out trained installer and engineers carry out on-site operator familiarisation classes that demonstrate to your chosen operators the methods and risks involved in operating our equipment.

Depending on the hoist, application and site environment, this may take up to a full day.  We will advise you of this when we carry out your site survey.

Testing & Certification

All of our Installers and Engineers are trained to the accepted NVQ standard, and are fully conversant with and operate to current safety legislation and Best Practice Guidelines, ensuring a skilled and reliable workforce, retaining high values and an excellent work ethos.

We are 100% CSCS card holders and, as members of CHIG (Construction Hoist Interest Group) we continue to monitor health and safety issues concerning the use of construction hoists making improvements with the Health & Safety Executive and the manufacturers.

In addition to this we also meet all requirements under LOLER and PUWER and observe the standards laid down by CHIG in their ‘Best Practise Guidelines for the Inspection, Thorough Examination and Maintenance of Construction Hoists and Transport Platforms’.

All of our installations are covered by our own site specific Method Statements and Risk Assessments, and the relevant certification is issued where necessary.

Hoist Repairs & Maintenance

Like all plant equipment, hoists need to be serviced, maintained, and repaired at various points during their use.

We have a fully equipped workshop with the latest testing and repair equipment that allows our engineers to make sure all of our hoists are maintained to the highest standard, insuring that your site personnel are using the safest and most reliable fleet in the industry.

We also offer maintenance and repair of customers own hoists, just contact our Hire Desk to discuss your requirements.

Safety and Support

Safety is of the utmost importance to us, for you, your site personnel, and our employees.

The Scot Hoist workforce are provided with, and will use all relevant PPE required for the site and application they are working on.

We work closely with our clients to ensure that our employees are fully aware of their responsibilities when it comes to site safety, and what is expected of them, whether that be in construction, petrochemical, re-furbishment or general building.

Our Hire Desk is in constant contact with our workforce, and should anything arise on site that is out of the norm, they will speak with our support team before carrying out any work on behalf of Scot Hoist.
