Thorough Examination

If you or your business use lifting equipment in day to day operations then you have to abide by The Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998, commonly known as LOLER. These health and safety regulations enshrine in law that those who provide, control and use lifting equipment ensure that is safe for operation. To ensure that your lifting equipment adheres to LOLER Regulations, you must have your equipment undergo Thorough Examinations.

According to LOLER the onus is on the employer to ensure that the lifting equipment undergoes thorough examinations at periodic intervals. Normally this is every 6 or 12 months but can be more frequent depending on the equipment.

What Are Thorough Examinations?

LOLER states that a detailed and methodical inspection of the equipment and safety procedures is to be carried out at regular intervals by a ‘competent person’ who will then compile a report that must include:

  • The date of the examination
  • The date of the next examination
  • Any defects or potential defects that could be hazardous or dangerous.

If any serious problems are uncovered the competent person must immediately verbally report this to the duty manager.

Finding a ‘Competent Person’ under LOLER Regulations

A person considered competent under LOLER must have the theoretical and practical knowledge of lifting equipment so they have the ability to provide a thorough examination. In addition for the thorough examination to take place the competent person must be adequately impartial and independent so that thorough examinations can be made without prejudice.

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.
