Employers or self-employed people providing lifting equipment for use at work, or those who have control of the use of lifting equipment, must make sure the lifting equipment is safe. The main requirements for 'duty holders' are in the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER) and the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER).

This leaflet provides advice on the options under LOLER relating to the requirement for thorough examination and inspection of lifting equipment and includes the benefits of having an 'examination scheme'. However, this does not replace the necessity for operators to carry out checks to lifting equipment and accessories before use.
