Lifting equipment must be inspected regularly as specified by the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations (1998). The main elements of these regulations are summarised below.
LOLER places obligations on:
- companies and individuals who own, operate or control lifting equipment; and
- any person or company whose employees use lifting equipment.
Activities involving lifting equipment must be:
- appropriately supervised;
- conducted safely; and
- planned by a competent individual.
All equipment used for lifting must be:
- fit for purpose;
- suitable for the task;
- appropriately labelled; and
- in the majority of cases be subject to thorough examinations at set periods.
Records should be kept of all:
- thorough examinations;
- any defects found; and
- such defects need to be reported to the person responsible for the defective lifting equipment and the enforcement authority.
In addition, lifting equipment is often also classified as work equipment and as such it is also subject to the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER).
