Understanding your legal requirements

The specific set of regulations that operators need to be aware of is the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations, LOLER. They require that,

  • All lifting equipment is thoroughly examined before being used for the first time and at set intervals throughout its life. Please note that the inspection carried out when a device is initially installed is particularly important, as a check is made on the stability and security of the mountings in an overload situation.
  • Records are kept of the examinations.
  • Maintenance is carried out in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations.
  • You only purchase equipment that carries the CE/UKCA mark.
  • Equipment is only used for its intended use.
  • Lifting operations are planned and their risks assessed.
  • Operators are trained and competent.
