Smart Safety Services Limited are national providers for LOLER Inspection, LOLER Thorough Examination, and LOLER Certification services.
Keeping your lifting equipment compliant can be a challenge, which is why our inspection database automatically plans the next due dates for each inspection, allowing us to notify our customers in advance when their lifting equipment needs to be inspected and certified again.
The Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (often abbreviated to LOLER) place duties on people and companies who own, operate or have control over lifting equipment. This includes all businesses and organisations whose employees use lifting equipment, whether owned by them or not. In most cases, lifting equipment is also work equipment so the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER) will also apply (including inspection and maintenance requirements).
All lifting operations involving lifting equipment must be properly planned by a competent person, appropriately supervised and carried out in a safe manner.
LOLER also requires that all equipment used for lifting is fit for purpose, appropriate for the task, suitably marked and subject to statutory periodic ‘thorough examination’. This can also be referred to as a LOLER Inspection.
Records must be kept of all thorough examinations and any defects found must be reported to both the person responsible for the equipment and the relevant enforcing authority.
