So, what are your legal obligations?

You must make sure your lifting equipment is safe to ensure you adhere to current legislation; Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER) and the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER).

LOLER states that you must have lifting equipment thoroughly examined at least once in every 12 month period.

Thorough Examinations are not the same as routine maintenance. Routine maintenance typically involves checking and replacing worn or damaged parts, lubrication, replacing time-expired components, topping up fluid levels and making routine adjustments.

Our key services include:

• Statutory Examinations & Testing (sometimes referred to as LOLER tests)

• Inspection

• Service

• Test Certificates

• Quality Reports & Surveys

We offer two planned maintenance programmes, Standard and Fully Comprehensive:-

• Standard - pay a set annual fee for two Thorough Examinations per year, plus unlimited emergency breakdown visits. Any parts used after the first year are charged following the visit.

• Fully Comprehensive - where equipment is less than one year old, pay a set annual fee for two Thorough Examinations per year, plus unlimited emergency breakdown visits. All parts required are included.
