In this respect it is vital for the safety of service users, and for staff, that such equipment is:

  • subject to appropriate risk assessments

  • used only by appropriately trained and competent staff

  • maintained in a safe condition to use and subject to regular inspections by a responsible person

  • subject to a visual check before use to ensure that there are no obvious defects.
