Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations
The UK's Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations (LOLER) place duties on people and companies who own, operate, or have control over lifting equipment.
A requirement of LOLER is that, in many cases, equipment used for lifting is subject to statutory, periodic 'thorough examination' by a 'Competent Person'.
A wide range of equipment is covered by LOLER; from lifts to cranes and hoists, fork-lift trucks to mobile elevating work platforms, as well as and many other types of lifting plant.
LOLER also cover lifting tackle and accessories (for example, chains, slings, eye bolts, etc).
