Mining Equipment Inspection & Registration Management
Adept can help you with your mining equipment compliance requirements
Mines have very high compliance requirements and not only need quality and accurate reporting but also a quick turnaround. A non-compliant pressure vessel can hold up an entire project, potentially costing hundreds of thousands of dollars – the price of getting it wrong is too high to risk.
Adept is the most trusted mining equipment pressure vessel inspection company in Australia. From underground mining equipment to plant maintenance, our systems and quality processes are set up for large asset lists for any type of mine. We can meet your mining safety and inspection compliance requirements.

Our mining equipment inspection procedure
Adept are experienced professionals in mining equipment inspections and plant maintenance procedures. Our work is always accurate and reliable with a quick turnaround.
- The Adept team will contact you to request your asset list in advance to record your equipment in our system. This will reduce our time on site and lower your quote. We will also ask you to highlight your induction requirements so that we have sufficient time to tend to them.
- Adept will then work with you to determine your requirements and secure a date for inspection.
- Upon receipt of a purchase order, an Adept Inspector will attend your site on the agreed date to conduct your required inspection.
- The Inspector will advise you on the compliance requirements of your site and place inspection adhesives on your equipment as evidence of inspection.
- Adept will send you a detailed report regarding the inspection.
- With your approval, Adept will then action outstanding registrations and provide certificates to you upon receipt from the State Authority.
Mines safety and inspection regulations
Mines have safety requirements based on WHS regulations. Commissioning inspections are required before equipment can be in use. Pressure vessels must be inspected by a competent person, such as an Adept inspector, and evidence of inspections must be available for audit.
“Adept go above and beyond. They worked around the clock to keep our pressure vessels compliant nationally when all the borders were shut. They make sure that any pressure vessels needing registration are actioned and keep all of our registrations in date.”
“Adept put our national audit together quickly and met all of our timeline requirements. They consistently deliver quality reporting and are always very helpful.”
“Adept are great to work with. They have been very hands on with making sure we understand and action our compliance requirements. They offer practical solutions and make sure we stay compliant.”
“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 have my pressure vessel inspection before I use it?
Yes. In Australia, an inspection is required to check that the pressure vessel design is compliant and that it has been designed to specification. During the inspection, the installation and any modifications will also need to be checked for compliance to standards to check that it is actually safe to operate.
If I have installed a pressure vessel to a plant/machine, do I need to get it inspected again?
Yes, because the environment of the pressure vessel has changed and the installation process may not be compliant so the current inspection report does not reflect this new situation. Refer to the Model Code of Practice: Managing risks of plants in the workplace, section 3.2. Installation and commissioning of plants for your commissioning responsibilities.
