LOLER Testing Services:

LOLER stands for the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations. These regulations were put in place to ensure the safe use of lifting equipment in various industries. LOLER inspections are an essential part of complying with these regulations.
LOLER inspections involve the examination and thorough testing of lifting equipment to ensure it is safe to use. The inspections are carried out by competent individuals who are certified by competent authority to perform the thorough testing. All our Service Engineers are certified by LEEA (Lifting Equipment Engineers Association) and  have the necessary expertise and knowledge to assess the equipment's condition and identify any potential safety issues.

The LOLER inspections cover a wide range of lifting equipment, including cranes, forklifts, hoists, lifting accessories, and any other equipment used for lifting loads. The inspections assess factors such as the equipment's design, construction, installation, and maintenance. They also focus on factors that could affect the equipment's safe operation, including overloading, stability, and structural integrity. The LOLER inspections in Ireland are conducted at regular intervals, which are determined based on factors such as the type of equipment, its usage, and the level of risk involved. The frequency of inspections can vary, but typically they are carried out at least once a year. However, more frequent inspections may be required for equipment that is subject to heavy use or used in high-risk environments.

During the LOLER inspection, the competent person examines the lifting equipment and assesses its condition. They may carry out a range of tests, such as load testing, non-destructive testing, and visual inspections. If any defects or issues are identified, they will be documented, and recommendations for repairs or maintenance will be made.

It is important for businesses and organisations in Ireland to comply with LOLER regulations and ensure that their lifting equipment is regularly inspected. Non-compliance can lead to legal consequences, as well as the risk of accidents, injuries, or damage to property.
