Covered in this course

The LOLER Training course is broken down into 5 sections.

1) What is LOLER?

The first section begins by explaining what the regulations are, who they apply to, and the four requirements which together, make lifting operations safer. It establishes a few key terms and introduces other pieces of legislation which feature throughout the rest of the course.

2) Selecting the right equipment

This section is all about making sure you have the right equipment. It covers Safe Working Loads, strength and stability, and what information should be provided with your equipment.

Section 2 of our LOLER training looks at selecting the right equipment

3) Location of your equipment

It’s not enough to just select the right equipment, you need to set it up in the right location too. This section covers everything you need to think about when choosing a location for your equipment. Are there overhead power lines, or nearby buildings and structures? Any tunnels or excavations underneath? What about people, will they be working underneath?

4) Planning Lifting Operations

Every lifting operation needs to be carefully planned, taking into account all foreseeable risks. This section will take you through everything you need to consider to make sure every lift is as safe as can be.

Planning is essential when lifting equipment

5) Maintenance of Lifting Equipment

Over time, things break. Wear and tear will take its toll on even the most well-kept pieces of equipment. Proper storage will help them last longer, but you should also have adequate procedures in place to make sure all your equipment is in a safe condition. This final section covers what you need to do to help maintain your equipment.

Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations (LOLER) 1998

It's important that you comply with the law and know the ways in which it affects you and the way you work. Take a look at relevant legislation below.

The Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER)

The Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER) Regulations aim to make working life safer for everyone using and coming into contact with lifting equipment: employers and employees, contractors and others. Like all regulations, they need to be studied closely. The words have been chosen carefully and sometimes have a precise legal meaning. At other times, you need to interpret the Regulations according to your own situation.
