The audit was conducted from 9 to 27 November 2020.


The objective of the audit was to monitor the company’s management of logistics, work at height, and safe use and maintenance of lifting equipment onboard COSLPromoter. We also wanted to verify that the planning and execution of lifting operations complied with the authorities’ requirements.


Three non-conformities were identified relating to:

  • Training in use of personnel basket
  • Maintenance management
  • Work at height

In addition, four improvement points were identified relating to:

  • Enterprise of competence for lifting equipment
  • Follow-up of suppliers of competent control of lifting equipment
  • User manuals
  • First-line maintenance

What happens next?

We have asked COSL to report on how the non-conformities will be addressed. In addition, we have asked the company for their assessment of the improvement points we observed. The reply deadline is set at 8 March 2021.
