An examination scheme involves a thorough examination and would include a detailed schedule of checks, appropriate examination techniques and testing requirements, drawn up to suit the operating conditions of a specific item of lifting equipment. This can help ensure that the resources you spend more accurately reflect the level of risk. The examination scheme: ■ should identify the parts of the lifting equipment to be thoroughly examined; ■ can cover a number of similar items subject to the same operating conditions, eg all the lifting accessories in a factory which are sufficiently similar in age and subjected to similar amounts […]

Who is a ‘competent person’ for thorough examination of lifting equipment ?

A competent person: ■ should have enough appropriate practical and theoretical knowledge and experience of the lifting equipment so that they can detect defects or weaknesses, and assess how important they are in relation to the safety and continued use of the equipment; ■ should not be the same person who performs routine maintenance as they would be responsible for assessing their own work; ■ should be sufficiently independent and impartial to make objective decisions; ■ may be employed by a separate company, or selected by an employer from members of their own staff.

What is thorough examination of lifting equipment?

Posted Posted in 14000, 1800 in Cameroon, API, ASNT, AWS, CWI, Dash Engineering Services, Design Pressure Vessel, ISNT, ISO certification 9000, ISO Services, Lifting equipment inspection in ABUDHABI, NACE, Nace Bgas painting inspector course, NDT Training, NEBOSH, Pipe Mill, Pipeline, Piping, piping fabrication Saudi Arabai, Piping inspector course In South Africa, preinspection services, Preshipment Inspection In Tanzania, Process, shutdown inspection course UAE, structural fabrication, Third party inspection, Third party inspection in uae, Third Party Inspection Services In Middleast, third party inspection services In Turkey, Uncategorized, welding

A thorough examination is a systematic and detailed examination of the lifting equipment by a competent person to detect any defects that are, or might become, dangerous. The competent person will determine the scope of the thorough examination and they may use a number of sources to help them do this, such as industry guidance. HSE’s Contract Research Report Thorough examination and inspection of particular items of lifting equipment (CRR429) may also be a useful reference tool (see ‘Find out more’).

Some equipment used in lifting is not covered by LOLER. Where this is the case, you would still have duties under PUWER to ensure the work equipment is safe and suitable, for example: ■ equipment whose principal function is not lifting, for example conveyor belts or the three-point linkage on a tractor; ■ items such as pallets, skips, ladles, one-trip slings attached to a load and similar containers, which are considered part of the load. For lifting equipment used mainly by members of the public (such as lifts in shopping centres or train stations), you do not have duties under […]

What does LOLER require?

LOLER addresses the specific risks associated with the use of lifting equipment. Thorough examination and inspection are key requirements of the Regulations. To meet these requirements, duty holders must: ■ ensure lifting equipment (including lifting accessories) exposed to conditions causing deterioration which could lead to dangerous situations undergoes regular thorough examination by a competent person; and ■ ensure all supplementary inspections and tests recommended by the competent person are carried out within the timescale stated. Examples of conditions causing deterioration are wet, abrasive or corrosive environments.
