Regulation 9 of The Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations (LOLER) puts in place requirements for all lifting equipment to be subject to ‘thorough examination’ at various points. Regulation 9(3) requires periodic thorough examination where equipment is subject to deterioration due to use and where this deterioration could lead to a dangerous situation. The frequency depends on the type of equipment and the purposes for which it is used, e.g equipment used for lifting people requires more frequent examination. Regulation 9(4) requires that no lifting equipment leaves a business and/or is used, including when received from a third party, unless there is physical evidence that the required thorough examination has been completed.
Note - This is sometimes referred to as LOLER Testing or LOLER Inspections
