SafeWork SA plant registration

Adept have knowledge handling the registrations of our South Australian clients, meaning that you can profit from our expert understanding of SafeWork SA requirements. Although you can organise your own registrations, any errors can cause your pressure vessel to not become registered – with costly financial implications.

When you choose Adept to handle your registrations, we make sure that they are taken care of including any registration renewals before they expire. We can supply your registrations certificates for any other auditing reasons on request.

“Adept Inspections & Training were called upon to carry out Statutory Pressure Vessel Testing & Inspections on our available assets, not only in our Workshop but were more than willing to travel to nearby sites. Adept not only supplied us with a punctual and competent Service Technician but also, with friendly Office Staff who look after all necessary planning, recording and documentation. I would recommend Adept Inspections and Training to anyone who requires this type of service.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to get my pressure vessel Inspected?

Yes, pressure vessel inspection is legislated and with good reason because a pressure vessel that has been: installed incorrectly and/or improperly maintained and/or had non-compliant alterations and/or simply wasn’t designed to the standards in the first place can be a dangerous hazard to your workplace.

Learn more about the legislation for South Australia Specifically “Chapter 5 – Plant & Structures”.

Do I need to get my pressure vessel plant item registered?

Yes, if it is a hazard level C or higher. Check if your pressure vessel needs registration here.

Can I just register my pressure vessel/s without having it inspected?

No you cannot register your pressure vessel without having it inspected. When you register a pressure vessel, you are declaring that it is safe to operate and is being inspected by a competent person on a regular basis.

How often do I need to renew my pressure vessel’s registration?

You need to renew your pressure vessel’s registration every 5 years. We can manage this for you.

I’m just renewing the registration not registering it, do I still need to get my pressure vessel/s inspected?

Whether you are completing an initial registration or just renewing the registration, you are still declaring that it is safe to operate and is being inspected by a competent person on a regular basis so yes.
