Building Maintenance Units (BMU) are commonly used for maintaining high-rise buildings with challenging access requirements.

Planned Preventative Maintenance (PPM) is essential to remain compliant with safety at height when using this type of system. It is recommended to have BMU Cradles tested for compliance at least once every 3 months, dependant on frequency of use, and fully serviced once every 12 months to ensure all mechanical components are in good working order.


 

Testing Standards

  • BS EN 6037
  • BS EN 1808
  • BS EN 795
  • LOLER
  • PUWER

Equipment falling under this legislation also includes, but is not limited to:

–        Travelling Ladders

–        Gantries

–        Cradles

–        Hoists

–        Suspended Access

–        Abseil Tracks

–        Demountable Components

–        Track Supports

–        Perimeter Tracks

–        Monorail Systems

TIP: whilst testing a Building Maintenance Unit, it is also imperative that associated PPE is inspected for compliance and appropriate use.
