Keeping people safe with our expert LOLER inspections

The Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations (LOLER) are a statutory requirement that places a duty on people and companies who own, operate, or have control of lifting equipment to ensure their lifting equipment is fit and safe for use.

A LOLER Inspection is, as set out by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), a “thorough examination of lifting equipment by a qualified or ‘competent’ person.” It’s a legal obligation and for those who aren’t up to date on it, you could face hefty penalties.

LOLER plays a vital role in ensuring that the right equipment is chosen for the job, that machinery is properly maintained and that, by having thorough exams, the risks associated with the machine failing and injuring someone are minimised.

Ensure the safety of your workforce and maintain compliance on your site with BES Group - safeguarding your machinery has never been easier!
