Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 Section 1
LOLER is the legal requirements relating to the use of lifting equipment, which in the case of hospitals and nursing homes are hoists and slings to be tested on a six monthly basis. This is compulsory.
The 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)
Do the Regulations apply to me?
If you are an employer providing lifting equipment for use at work, or you have control of the use of lifting equipment, then the Regulations will apply to you.
While your employees do not have duties under LOLER, they do have general duties under the HSW Act and the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 (MHSWR), for example to take reasonable care of themselves and others who may be affected by their actions and to co-operate with others.
What do the Regulations require me to do?
You need to ensure that in using any lifting equipment the requirements of LOLER are met.
