The Cylinder Service Centre can provide full technical support for LOLER inspection and test.
LOLER stands for the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations that came into force in December 1998. It replaced existing legal requirements relating to the use of lifting equipment, for example the Construction (Lifting Operations) Regulations 1961, the Docks Regulations 1988 and the Lifting Plant and Equipment (Records of Test and Examination etc) Regulations 1992.
In addition to the requirements of LOLER, lifting equipment is also subject to the requirements of the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER).
Generally, the Regulations require that lifting equipment provided for use at work is:
- strong and stable enough for the particular use and marked to indicate safe working loads;
- positioned and installed to minimise any risks;
- used safely, ie the work is planned, organised and performed by competent people; and
- subject to ongoing thorough examination and, where appropriate, inspection by competent people
All repairs are subject to our fault diagnostic process before we begin work to make sure we are working in the right area and so we can discuss technical issues and associated costs with the customer concerned.
All parts supplied and repairs have a full 12 month warranty which includes both parts and labour.
