We carry out safety inspections, maintenance and repairs of sports, fitness & pe equipment for school gyms, sports halls, gymnasiums and play areas to ensure compliance with Health and Safety requirements.
In the current circumstances with the Covid19 pandemic we are doing what we can to help you ensure the safety of your sports and PE equipment and minimise risk to all your staff and students, and our employees.
We can carry out any safety inspections, maintenance or repairs on Saturdays or Sundays, or afternoons and evenings after school if that enables works to be carried out and for us all to maintain social distancing and keep facilities in a safe condition. All we need is access to your facilities to complete the works. All our staff are provided with masks, visors, gloves and hand sanitiser to minimise risks to all parties and we only allow work to be carried out in areas where we have exclusive access for our personnel only.
Several customers have requested works only to be carried out in half term or holidays but unfortunately there aren't enough holiday days for everyone.
If you wish to discuss these options when booking your maintenance or repairs please contact us. We will do whatever we can to keep your facilities safe to use and ensure the safety of your staff and students and our personnel.
Our service includes inspection of all required equipment, with most repairs carried out immediately whilst on site by
our CRB accredited engineers.
This is followed by a full report advising condition of equipment, repairs carried out & advice of any further repairs required.
On completion of all works a health & safety certificate is issued.

Sports hall and Gymnasium inspection and maintenance
Every gymnasium and sports hall should have an annual inspection (at least) and maintenance carried out by a reputable company to ensure the facilities are safe for use. Olympic Gymnasium Services are the leading specialist providing inspection, maintenance and repair services for PE, gymnastic, sports and fitness equipment and sports surfaces. Some reasons for and benefits of having regular inspections and maintenance are:
- Establishments owe a Duty of Care to all users of their facilities;
- Teachers owe a high duty of care to students, the care that would be expected of a reasonable parent, whether in school, on weekends or holidays (in loco parentis);
- Legislation requires managers, PE teachers and coaches to have carried out Risk Assessments to identify risks and implement measures to mitigate these (the managing body or principle is responsible for ensuring such a system is in operation from 1/1/93);
- PE equipment carries a high risk and requires regular inspection and servicing by specialists - British Standard 1892 Part 1:1986 states "An inspection should be carried out at least once a year."
- "A stitch in time saves nine". It is generally more cost effective to keep your equipment in good order than have to pay for disposal and replacement or an extensive repair.
