Premier Technical Services Group PLC (PTSG) has undertaken reverse engineering works at Heathrow Airport to bring its access systems up to date with required certification and technical information.

PTSG’s Access and Safety division deployed a team to attend work on the control tower at Heathrow Airport, where they performed measuring, detailing and structural engineering to bring abseiling anchorages and rails up to date and in line with statutory Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER) 9(2) compliance standards.

LOLER regulations ensure lifting equipment is fit for purpose and require that any anchor points and rails are suitable for use by operatives and subject to thorough examination.

Heathrow Airport is the busiest airport in Europe, and the sixth busiest in the world. PTSG has provided services at Heathrow Airport since 2008, carrying out a variety of testing, remedial and maintenance works at Terminals 2,3,4 and 5. The Group also provides safety testing and maintenance services at many other international airports including Doha International, London Stansted and Aberdeen International, amongst others.
