What does MGN 331 recommend regarding the regular examinations of work equipment?

Where the safety of work equipment depends on the manner in which it was installed, it should be inspected by a competent person after installation, and before being brought into use, and at regular intervals thereafter. The MCA strongly recommends that the maximum interval between inspections should be 5 years for work equipment, or any shorter period recommended by the manufacturer. A “competent person” should carry out all inspections.
