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.
Leeds Lifts can carry out compliance maintenance and testing in accordance with Regulation 9 of The Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 and issue the relevant report.
A competent person will assess, examine and produce a report based on their findings, and will make recommendations (if any are required) to improve the running of the lift and ensure ongoing safety and compliance.
LOLER testing can be carried out alongside our maintenance packages.
