The supplier is required to ensure that any excessive wear or damage to the plant is identified and rectified. Proper regard should be given to the designer's or manufacturer's specifications for inspection and maintenance. A regular testing program should be implemented. Testing should consider factors such as the amount of use of the plant and the operating and environmental conditions during the period. Where plant is to be transferred between hirees or lessees without being returned to the supplier's depot, the supplier is required to ensure that the plant is inspected and maintained before transfer. For example, this may be done "on-site" without returning the plant to the depot. Where the plant is hired or leased for an extended period of time, the supplier should make arrangements with the hiree or lessee to have the plant inspected and maintained, giving proper regard to the designer's or manufacturer's specifications for inspection and maintenance. With plant that is hired or leased with an operator, the supplier may fulfil their duty by preparing a comprehensive set of checks, and authorising the operator to carry out these checks between hiring and leasing. If this option is adopted, the supplier should ensure that the operator is competent to apply the checks and carry out, or arrange to carry out, the maintenance identified by the checks. The supplier should ensure that records are kept of inspections and maintenance carried out on the plant. If agreement is reached that the hiree or lessee undertake the necessary inspections and maintenance, the supplier should ensure that either during the hire or lease of the plant or at the conclusion of the hire or lease, all records associated with inspections and maintenance of the plant are obtained from the hiree or lessee. 6.7 Second-hand plant Suppliers must provide the purchaser with any information relating to the safe use of the plant that is in their possession. This should include information relating to commissioning, operation, maintenance and systems of work. The information may consist of data sheets, test certificates, operations and service manuals, reports and a safety manual. Persons who conduct a business or undertaking involved in the supply of second-hand plant must ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, that any faults that cause a risk to health and safety (including excessive wear and damage) are identified and rectified before supplying the plant. Persons conducting a business or undertaking not involved in the supply of second-hand plant but who decide to sell or transfer a piece of plant they have used must provide a written notice outlining the condition of the plant, any faults identified and, if appropriate, that the plant should not be used until the fault is rectified. This notice must be provided to the person to whom the plant is supplied.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
