About the Course

This short course provides you with an introduction to the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998, otherwise known as LOLER.

The course starts by explaining the purpose of LOLER, before setting out what is meant by a lifting operation. It then provides some examples of equipment covered by the legislation.

Next, it explores why lifting equipment safety is so important, detailing the types of injuries that machinery can cause.

Moving on, the course covers the equipment maintenance requirements that must be complied with by law. It provides a detailed explanation as to what is meant by ‘thorough examination’ under LOLER, then looks at lifting equipment markings and the safe working load.

It finishes by covering what the regulations require of your organisation when it comes to the protection of young persons.
