Section 12-3. Requirements for systematic inspection and maintenance

Maintenance work shall be carried out safely.
The maintenance work shall be carried out with due regard to ongoing activities.
If the safety of the work equipment depends on the conditions under which it is installed, the employer shall ensure that an inspection is carried out before it is first used. Such an inspection shall be carried out after every installation at a new site or workplace.
The employer shall ensure periodic inspection if the work equipment and plant are exposed to impacts that cause degradation and can potentially lead to hazardous situations.
