 About Crimson Online Reporting Tool


Plant Guide

Our interactive tool helps identify plant and machinery, view statutory and regulatory requirements and inspection frequency.



Managing statutory equipment can be difficult and needs tight control to avoid potential issues when equipment is used beyond its statutory inspection due date. One way to control the use of equipment is to physically tag or “colour code” when it has been examined and is safe to use.
