Current HSE Guidance for Pressurised Systems – COVID 19 update
Avelair continues to be operational to offer support to companies that are operating their compressed air systems as the HSE has confirmed it continues to be essential work to maintain compressed air systems. Compressed air systems have a legal requirement under the Pressure System Safety Regulations 2000 to ensure they are maintained on a regular basis and includes receiver inspections, safety component inspections, regular maintenance, repairs and breathing air tests.
