LIFT INISPECTIONS (LOLER)
Through examination and testing of lifts
Under the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (known as LOLER) passenger, goods and home lifts are required to have a regular examination. A list of lift plant requiring inspection is shown below.
- Passenger Lifts
- Goods Lifts
- Service Lifts
- Platform Lifts
- Stair Lifts
- Home Lifts
- Scissor Lift (Goods & Persons)
We recognise that whilst this is a legal requirement, you would prefer these essential examinations to be carried out in a pain free manner, with the least possible disruption. We are happy to work with you to keep interruptions to a minimum, whilst ensuring the examination is thorough and effective.
Compliance to LOLER is through examinations which are in addition to regular servicing, think of it as similar to an M.O.T. for lifts.
How often should a Test be carried out?
Every six months for lifting equipment used for lifting/lowering persons. E.g. passenger lifts, access platforms and home lifts.
HSE - A SIMPLE GUIDANCE FOR LIFT OWNERS
The Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER) introduced new requirements for the safe provision and use of lifting equipment.
Regulation 9 of LOLER requires that all lifts provided for use in work activities are thoroughly examined by a competent person at regular intervals. This applies to lifts and hoists used to lift people or loads. If you are a lift owner or someone responsible for the safe operation of a lift used at work, such as a facilities manager or supervisor, you are a ‘dutyholder’ under LOLER. This means that you have a legal responsibility to ensure that the lift is thoroughly examined and that it is safe to use.
