Our Services

Independence | Impartiality | Integrity

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

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.

Statutory Instruments

Statutory Instruments (SIs) are a form of legislation which allow the provisions of an Act of Parliament to be subsequently brought in to force or altered without Parliament having to pass a new Act. The following regulations are an example of what may apply in your workplace, all of which fall under the umbrella of the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974.
