Testing / Inspections

Lifting and Crane have an experienced team of qualified engineers to carry out ‘comprehensive’ statutory examinations in line with L.O.L.E.R. ‘The Lifting Operations Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998’.


The Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations (L.O.L.E.R), together with the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (P.U.W.E.R) came into force in 1998.  These two new legislations replaced the old 1961 Factories Act.

Under L.O.L.E.R, your lifting equipment must be thoroughly examined at a period not exceeding 12 months or sooner as stated in your Risk Assessments, depending on any hazards or frequency of use.  Lifting accessories under the same legislation must be thoroughly examined within a period of 6 months, or again, as per your Risk Assessments.

As duty holders, it is the responsibility of the user of these products to ensure that records are kept to comply to this legislation.

In both cases, the law states that these examinations must be conducted by a Competent Person.  Our team of qualifies engineers are at our customers’ disposal to conduct examinations and advise on keeping records, risk assessments and general guidance on compliance with the legislation.

Conforming with L.O.L.E.R and ensuring that your records are kept up to date means that there is no need to incur the extra costs of engaging your insurance company to conduct the task.

Upon completion, we will register your Company particulars, lifting equipment information and test history at our premises for statutory purposes which are always available upon request.

We are also experienced to carry out tests on new or repaired lifting equipment whether on our customer’s site or back at our own premises. Calibrated tensile load and compression cells are available up to 50 tonnes capacity.

Whatever the requirement, Lifting and Crane can help.
