LOLER testing is a legal requirement under the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER)
Where lifts and/or hoists are used to lift people or loads, the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER) require that the machines are examined at regular intervals by a competent person. This is a legal requirement (Regulation 9) to ensure the safe provision and use of lifting equipment.
If your business or organisation provides lifting equipment (platform, passenger, good etc.) for people to use, or undertakes other lifting operations, it is your responsibility to manage and control the risks involved to reduce the possibility of injury or damage.
There is a legal responsibility that sits with the owner of the lift to ensure the lift is examined regularly and is safe to use. The current legal requirement is for testing to occur every 6 months.
As Leeds Lifts’ main focus is Lift Servicing, Repair and new lift Installation, we no longer offer LOLER inspections. However we can offer free advice should you wish to discuss this with us.
