What is LOLER?

 
 

The abbreviation LOLER stands for: Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations.

It places duties and responsibility on employers and their team who operate, own or have control over lifting equipment.

By complying with LOLER a business must get certifications to confirm equipment is maintained correctly and meets the requirements of the required tasks safely.

Please also see the PUWER information to the right as this often is also applicable in a lifting environment.

What is PUWER?

 
 

The abbreviation PUWER stands for: Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations – an employer and its staff have the responsibility to ensure its work equipment, whether owned by them or not, is in good working order and is safe to use by its employees or contractors.

Being PUWER compliant ensures the correct maintenance and certification is applied to the working equipment.

If you are working with lifting equipment it is likely that you may need both PUWER and LOLER compliance certifications.
