Or more frequent intervals determined by a competent individual as part of an examination scheme. Other lifting equipment such as materials lifts should be inspected every 12 months minimum.

HLS MD and maintenance guru

“A well maintained machine runs better, boosts performance and improves efficiency. Regularly keeping up to date with your service schedule has a multitude of benefits. Engine oil and filter replacements keep engines running smoothly, and for electric machines regular lubrication keeps moving parts operating correctly and avoids damage; both save you money on potentially costly breakdowns..”

Useful information

LOLER also requires that all equipment used for lifting is fit for purpose, appropriate for the task, suitably marked and, in many cases, subject to statutory periodic 'thorough examination'. Records must be kept of all thorough examinations and any defects found must be reported to both the person responsible for the equipment and the relevant enforcing authority.
