ARB Wind Ltd specialises in statutory compliance and provision of bespoke inspection & maintenance packages that clients can confidently rely on each year. Our strict training and integrated management system ensure that we always provide a competent, reliable & independent service.
Although we are based heavily in the renewables wind industry, our services span across all work places with the same legislation applicable.
Statutory Inspections cover various legislative requirements and industry best-practices to ensure equipment is safe for use and does not pose a danger to life. This can cover a multitude of equipment types from working at height PPE to a nitrogen accumulator situated in the hub of a wind turbine. Whether it be a requirement from a piece of legislation or following best-practice from a standard, they are all completely different and can be confusing at times. ARB Wind are here to consult and conduct in this process to the correct periodicity, ensuring you are compliant with statute law and maintaining a safe workplace.
