About Hutcheon Examination Services - Our Story

Founded in 2004, Hutcheon Examination Services Limited (HESL) has built a strong reputation for completing statutory examinations and proof load testing for mechanical equipment across a range of UK industries.

Since the beginning, our dedicated team has been motivated by the belief that safety inspections must be driven by quality – first and foremost. Clients from sectors as diverse as manufacturing, care, education and entertainment put their safety and compliance in our capable hands, year after year.

Today, companies big and small trust HESL’s Engineer Surveyors to check their equipment meets regulations such as LOLER, PUWER, PSSR and CoSHH.

We take that responsibility very seriously and complete every job with the time, precision and pride it deserves. For us, accuracy comes before targets – always has, always will.

A streamlined approach to achieving compliance

When you choose HESL to do the statutory examinations and proof load testing for your mechanical equipment, you will benefit from specific expertise at every stage of your customer experience.

Got questions or concerns? Rest assured, we’re only ever a phone call away and happy to talk to you.


No need to keep track of when safety inspections are due – our Admin team will make sure you’re sent a reminder in advance and get the job booked in for you before your statutory due date, to ensure you remain fully compliant.



A friendly, highly qualified, DBS-checked Engineer Surveyor will visit your site and complete the required inspection/s to the highest standards, without interrupting the running of your organisation.



HESL experts will ensure you are promptly sent a full report about the inspection, advising on any actions necessary for improving the safety and compliance of your equipment.
