Operations that involve lifting equipment can pose significant risks to people’s health and safety if not properly managed. Under the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER), both employers and employees have duties they must fulfil in order to ensure the hazards associated with lifting operations and equipment are kept to a minimum.
If you are someone who works with lifting equipment, this course will provide you with a strong awareness of what LOLER requires. It will help you understand the necessary actions that must be taken to meet regulation standards and prevent harm from befalling anyone who works with or near lifting operations and equipment. It includes information on how to assess risks, how to select suitable lifting equipment, how to maintain the equipment, and the importance of thoroughly planning operations.
By the end of this course, learners will understand:
All of our courses are accredited by the CPD Certification Service as conforming to universally accepted Continuing Professional Development (CPD) guidelines.
On successful completion of the course you will be sent a quality assured certificate through the post the next working day. This can be used to provide evidence for compliance and audit.
