LOLER Testing

The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER) and the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER) place regulations and requirements on owners, users and providers of lifting equipment and lifting operations.  Under these regulations it is necessary to have it tested and to ensure that maintenance of the equipment is up to date. 

LOLER testing should be carried out: 
  • Before equipment is put into service 
  • After installation, where safety is dependent on correct installation. 
  • Periodic examinations as per requirement to ensure the equipment is maintained correctly 
  • After any exceptional circumstances or a period of prolonged lack of use 

How often does the equipment need testing? 
  • Every 6 months for equipment used to lifting/lowering persons 
  • Every 6 months for lifting accessories 
  • Every 12 months for all other lifting equipment, for example cranes, lifting blocks and runway beams 

Intervals for testing can be amended if determined by a risk assessment.
