The Lifting Operations & Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER) came into force on 5 December 1998. The requirements of LOLER apply to employers, the self-employed and people in control of or managing lifting operations.
LOLER requires personal climbing equipment to be thoroughly examined every 6 months and tree rigging equipment every 12 months.
We can also mark or label equipment with a unique identity number and pre-calculated Safe Working Load Limit (SWL). This complete service reduces the amount of preparation required by the client. An instantly recognisable SWL visible on each component of a rigging system enables tree surgeons to choose the appropriate hardware out on the job without the need to calculate safety factors, thereby saving time, improving safety and minimising wear.
In accordance with LOLER after making a thorough examination we will notify the client of any defects and make a report of the examination.
Please contact us for further details and prices.
