Thorough examination and testing of lifts.
The Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations (LOLER) introduced a legal requirement for the safe provision and use of all lifting equipment.
LOLER requires that all lifts and hoists used to lift people or loads in work activities are thoroughly examined by a competent person at regular intervals. This competent person must be independent and impartial.
If the lift is used at any time to carry people, LOLER inspections must be carried out every 6 months and for goods only lifts the LOLER inspection must be carried out once every 12 months.
The law requires that all lifts when in use should also be thoroughly examined after significant changes have been made or following damage to, or failure of the lift or after long periods of not being used. As any of these circumstances could affect the integrity of the equipment.
Class 1 Elevators have the technical and practical knowledge required to be able to detect any defects and assess how significant they are.
