Whenever an asset or component don’t have the needed technical details such as drawings, bill-of-material, manuals, and other engineering data, EQS develop a Reverse Engineering process.

Fall Protection Equipment

In almost every industry, there are areas where workers are subject to the risk of falls. Developing and implementing comprehensive fall protection programs in the workplace can prevent injuries and fatalities, as well as a significant reduction of the costs associated with injured employees and their medical providers.

Regular safety inspection of individual and collective protection against fall equipment is mandatory and essential for working safely at heights. To maintain the safety integrity level and service life, all equipment must be thoroughly inspected by experienced technicians, able to ensure that all safety measures are put in place and that all regulatory standards and legislation are being met.

Electrical Inspections

Failures in electrical installations are potential hazards that can result in fires, explosions and power outages. Regular testing and inspection are essential in order to check if they are in satisfactory condition for continued use.

Electrical equipment must be submitted to demanding Factory Acceptance Tests (FAT) and the condition monitored by regular testing and inspection.

Lifts & Escalators

Lifts are a central and indispensable means for the safe and comfortable access to buildings. Aiming to ensure the safety requirements and legal compliance of this equipment and similar – platforms, stairs and escalators -, inspection activities are essential.

EQS Global is an accredited Third-party Inspection Body (TPI) for Lifts and Escalators.

Fire Safety Systems

Fire safety systems have a crucial role in ensuring the safety of a plant. They can protect lives, and your business assets, minimizing unnecessary costs or other losses.

In order to sustain this level of protection, all these systems must ensure high reliability through an effective inspection, testing, and preventive maintenance program.
EQS Global inspection services employ all the necessary tests to guarantee safety and fit-for-purpose of fire safety systems.

Fairgrounds & Amusement Parks

Fairgrounds and amusement parks, when properly operated and maintained, can be considered safe places. Most accidents happen due to inappropriate safety measures and integrity failures, causing injuries or fatalities. These assets must be operated and maintained in such a way that an adequate safety and integrity level (SIL) is achieved.

EQS Global certified inspectors have experience in the inspection of fairgrounds and amusement parks, needing to be able to analyse all components related to safety and to perform the necessary testing, aiming to guarantee the safe operation of the assets.

Accident Examination & Expert Witness

Work equipments are the pillar of any major construction project. Used on a daily basis, most of the related accidents occur due to safety issues and material mishandling. For this reason, it is important to carry out regular safety inspections, as they provide a means of detecting potential hazards, and preventing failures. Besides this, these procedures are used to ensure the equipment’s safety and reliability, and compliance with all statutory requirements.
