The Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations (LOLER) 1998 replaced existing legal requirements relating to the use of lifting equipment. The LOLER Regulations aim to reduce risks to people’s health and safety from lifting equipment provided for use at work. In addition to the requirements of LOLER, lifting equipment is also subject to the requirements of the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER).
“If you are an employer or self-employed person providing lifting equipment for use at work, or you have control of the use of lifting equipment, then the Regulations will apply to you”.
This guidance provides guidance on the regulations, and what you should be considering.
