Inspection of stationary and portable electrical equipment
DGUV Regulation 3 (formerly BGV A3) of the German Social Accident Insurance prescribes inspection of all electrical equipment from computer monitors and power drills to mains adapters. Aside from portable equipment, stationary electrical machinery and facilities must also be regularly inspected for operational safety. In addition, medical equipment which is used in hospitals, senior citizen and care homes is also subject to regular inspection. Piepenbrock captures the details of every single piece of equipment by means of a barcode and files the details in an online database. Following visual inspection we use special software to measure protective earth and insulation resistance and contact electricity, for instance. The detailed results are fed directly into the database and any defective equipment is taken out of circulation. On successful inspection, our inspection engineers affix an inspection plate on the electrical devices, facilities and equipment. As customer, this inspection plate lets you know when the inspection period expires and the next inspection is due. You then receive a full inspection summary including all the inspection reports, and have thus fully satisfied all your obligations as an employer. We only deploy qualified electricians who are specially trained in inspection service requirements and are intimately acquainted with the standards.

Inspection of ladders and steps
Technical equipment that is a potential source of danger also includes ladders and steps. Consequently, companies using this equipment are subject to mandatory inspection: visual and function checks of all ladders and steps must be performed regularly. We examine and document the legally compliant condition of your equipment. Find out more about the inspection of ladders and steps.
