The Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations (LOLER) 1998 apply to all businesses in the UK that have lifting plant and undertake lifting operations.

LOLER requires businesses to undertake periodic inspections of their lifting equipment by an independent competent person such as Zurich Engineering, a UKAS accredited inspection body.

How we can help your business comply with LOLER:

Zurich provides routine in-service examinations of lifting equipment to comply with the requirements of LOLER. Our Engineer Surveyors carry out thorough visual examinations, focusing on safety critical components and primarily aimed at controlling risks associated with:

  • the failure of mechanical components or electrical devices that could lead to the loss of control of any load or persons being lifted, lowered, arrested or suspended
  • the failure of mechanical components or electrical devices that could lead to persons falling from height – for example, from a crane
  • the failure of mechanical components or electrical devices that are designed to protect persons, for example, safety or protective device.
