LOLER Regulations

Does your company owns and/or your employees use lifting equipment? If yes, then you are governed by LOLER, which stands for Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations (1998). Alongside you should also abide by PUWER (Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations). LOLER Regulations are applicable to cranes, forklift trucks, hydraulic platforms, hoists and window cleaner lifts.

LOLER Regulations can be summarised as below:

  • Careful planning is essential before undertaking any lifting operation.
  • A competent person should execute the lifting operations.
  • The lifting operation should be appropriately supervised giving utmost importance to safety.
  • Only appropriate lifting equipment should be used for the lifting task.
  • All the lifting equipment should be regularly examined.
  • Record of examinations of lifting equipment should be maintained.
  • All the defects identified should be reported to the stakeholder that is responsible for the equipment and also to the authority in charge.
  • Safe working loads or SWL should be clearly marked on all the lifting equipment and the associated accessories.
  • All the delimiting factors should also be marked whereby the safety of their use could be undermined.
  • In case, the lifting equipment is used to lift people clear markings should be made regarding the maximum number of people lifted along with the SWL of the lifting equipment.
  • Only lifting equipment designed to lift people should be used for this purpose and all the other equipment should be marked unfit for the use of lifting people.
  • All the equipment should be fully examined prior to their first use to ensure conformity with the safety standards.
  • Equipment should also be thoroughly examined on new installations, re-installations, or assembly in a new site.
  • Equipment should be exposed to deterioration leading to unsafe use.

Central Training Services Limited started using Aerial Access Services a number of years ago after they were recommended for a breakdown. Stephen called out to see the machine, diagnosed the fault within minutes and had a quote emailed the same day with the new part fitted the next day.
