The role of EKH


The EKH is an umbrella organisation for inspection companies for lifting equipment (this includes lifting and hoisting equipment, as well as machinery). These companies participate in either of or both two sections for lifting equipment: “below the hook” and “above the hook” (cranes). In the section entitled “Lifting and Hoisting ”, you can read about the type of equipment involved.

In order to attain its goals (maximum safety), EKH has drawn up work instructions for each section and training programmes for inspectors. This means that customers of EKH members have the assurance that the inspection and testing of their lifting equipment is performed in a proficient and uniform manner by specialists with proven expertise. In this way the customer is able to fully satisfy its statutory responsibilities in this area.
