Inspections and Maintenance

We are accredited by SafeContractor to carry out Inspection and Testing of Flagpoles under Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 ( PUWER ) To ensure your flagpole remains fit for purpose and compliant, we offer 6 monthly or annual flagpole inspections together with planned preventative maintenance (PPM) contracts.

Our engineers are qualified to work at height to carry out more complex inspections on buildings/roof mounted flagpoles. They all hold IPAF qualifications to use the appropriate access equipment if necessary.

We have a comprehensive range of spare parts for all of your maintenance needs for all different types of flagpoles irrespective of age.  

Our safety inspections and maintenance for fibreglass and aluminium Flagpoles include:

Flagpole integrity

We lower the flagpole where possible and wash the flagpole using a non-abrasive cleaner to enable us to inspect for cracks and structural defects, which could lead to the failure of the flagpole.

Fixing bolts / Anchoring system

We inspect for wear and tear, and replace as necessary.


We check any additional support arms and wires to ensure all fittings are secure. We look for any movement / slipping of the collars up or down the flagpole by a visual inspection looking for any damage to the surface.

Finials / Truck head

These are replaced if damaged or faulty.


Abnormal wear and tear leading to failure, resulting in the flag becoming detached from the pole and replaced as necessary.


The fixing screws are checked to ensure the cleat remains fit for purpose. A defective or lose cleat could result in the halyard and the flag becoming detached from the pole.

Wooden poles

We offer a moisture and density test to ascertain the structural integrity of the pole.  For aluminium or steel flagpoles we offer an examination of the flagpoles and fittings using  non-destructive test methods. Should your flagpoles fail inspection we offer removal or replacement options as appropriate.

PUWER Certification

On completion of works we will send you a copy of the completed Flagpole Inspection Check sheet (link to the new form) and issue a PUWER certificate valid for either 6 or 12 months certifying the flagpole(s) were fit for purpose at the time of inspection. We recommend the certificate is kept with your health and safety manual for inspection purposes by third part.
