    What are the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations (LOLER)?

    What are the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations (LOLER)?

    The LOLER regulations, as they are often referred to as, cover the proper use of lifting equipment in all places where it is required. This applies to people who are self-employed and not just those who are part of a business or company. The Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations cover all equipment used for lifting purposes. They also cover any equipment used to support the lifting equipment itself, so in reality the LOLER regulations cover any and all equipment used in lifting.

    The rules also apply to all equipment used for this purpose, and not just equipment that is provided by the business involved. For example if an employee has their own lifting equipment, the regulations still apply and they should adhere to them at all times. This is for the safety and security of all concerned, to minimise the chances of any accidents occurring.

    Claiming compensation for injuries caused through incorrect lifting

    Accidents have the potential to take place if the incorrect lifting equipment is used, or if the correct equipment is poorly maintained or improperly used. This means it is incredibly important to make sure employees are properly aware of and trained in the correct procedures for operating such equipment.

    If you believe there is evidence that negligence has occurred in the chain of events leading to your use of lifting equipment that has resulted in an accident, it is important to get legal advice from professional injury compensation lawyers now.
