    About LOLER Management & Inspection for Duty Holders

    The Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations place a legal responsibility on employers and people who own, operate or have control over lifting equipment. This includes everything from large cranes operated on construction sites, fork trucks in warehouses and hoists used to move patients in care homes. And the duties include ensuring such equipment is suitable and adequately risk assessed, controlled, inspected and maintained.

    This online LOLER Competent Person course provides anyone with such duties with a greater awareness of how to ensure compliance, while ensuring the safety of their operations.
