Address safety concerns quickly with detailed forklift LOLER assessments. Here at East Midlands Forklifts, we use our 25 years of combined experience to check over the lifting components of your forklift to identify any issues, and to ensure it meets safety regulations.
LOLER (Lifting Operations & Lifting Equipment Regulations) were outlined in 1998 to help owners and managers of lifting equipment adhere to safety obligations, avoiding injury, inconvenience and legal issues. If you own or operate a company that uses forklifts, or other types of lifting equipment, it’s therefore crucial to assess whether your equipment and day-to-day practices are meeting these obligations.
Forklift LOLER checks will assess several elements, including whether your machine is:
- Fit for purpose
- Stable and strong
- Stored and used in a safe manner
- Marked with essential information
- Manned by trained, supervised staff
These checks will identify technical issues, problems with suitability, and aim to prevent any avoidable mishaps from occurring.
If you’re searching for a professional team to conduct comprehensive LOLER regulation checks, look no further than East Midlands Forklifts – we serve a broad area including Nottingham, Leicester, Derby & Loughborough.
