Lifting Equipment Hire & Testing

Site Material Handling

Site Material Handling

If you are an employer or self-employed person providing lifting equipment for use at work, or if you have control of the use of lifting equipment, you must make sure the lifting equipment is safe. 

The main requirements for you as a ‘duty holder’ are in the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER) and the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER).

What equipment is covered by LOLER?

The scope of the Regulations is very wide and includes a range of                                                                             equipment. There are two important definitions you need to know:

  • ‘lifting equipment’ means work equipment for lifting and lowering loads. The definition includes attachments used to anchor, fix or support the equipment (eg the runway of an overhead crane)
  • 'accessory for lifting' means lifting equipment for attaching loads to machinery for lifting.
