The Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER) identify the 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.
A Thorough Examination is a systematic and detailed examination of the lift and all of its associated equipment, by a competent person. No remedial work is undertaken but recommendations, potential failures and actual failures are identified and reported on. The competent person is also legally required to send you a written and signed Report of Thorough Examination as soon as practicable.
These regulations place duties on people and companies who own, operate or have control over lifting equipment – from Service and Platforms lifts, all the way through to Passenger and Goods lifts. This means that if you are a lift owner or someone responsible for the safe operation of a lift, then you are a ‘duty holder’ 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.
