LOLER, which stands for The Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998, is vital legislation that sets a standardised framework for organizations involved in the operation or control of lifting equipment and lifting accessories.


Its primary objective is to ensure that all lifting equipment used in these organizations is suitable and safe for operation.

Compliance with LOLER 1998 is not only essential for maintaining a safe working environment but is also a legal requirement. Organizations are obliged to adhere to the regulations to guarantee the well-being of their employees and prevent accidents or injuries caused by faulty or inappropriate lifting equipment.

The regulations cover various aspects of lifting operations, including the planning, execution, and maintenance of lifting equipment. They outline specific duties and responsibilities for duty holders, such as employers, equipment owners, and operators, to ensure compliance with the set standards and procedures.

By adhering to LOLER 1998, organizations demonstrate their commitment to prioritizing safety and protecting their workforce. It provides a comprehensive framework that helps identify potential hazards, assess risks, and implement appropriate control measures.

Our team of professionals ensures that your organisation fully complies with the regulations, conducting thorough assessments of your lifting equipment, providing expert advice, and implementing necessary measures to ensure their suitability and safety.
