Loler redEnsure you’re covered for every eventuality and your business isn’t exposed! 

If your business undertakes lifting operations or provides lifting equipment for others to use, you must manage and control the risks to avoid any injury or damage.

What is classed as a ‘lifting operation’?

A lifting operation is defined as 'an operation concerned with the lifting or lowering of a load'. A 'load' is the item or items being lifted, which includes a person or people.

Do I need a LOLER Test?

If your loader is registered to the farm and not to an individual, then a LOLER test is required.

Lifting equipment must be thoroughly examined in several situations, including:

  • Before its first use (unless there is a valid Declaration of Conformity made less than 12 months earlier)
  • Where it depends on installation, or re-installation / assembly at another site
  • Where it is exposed to conditions causing deterioration, liable to result in danger

Records of thorough examinations should be made and, where defects are identified, they should be highlighted.

We are CFTS registered and have accredited examiners who can carry out this LOLER Inspection for you.
