How do i know my slings are safe to use?? – This is a common question when moving and handling procedures are to be carried out.
The sling inspection and tagging process we use will ensure that your slings are safe to use and clearly state when their next LOLER inspection is due. This tagging process means that staff can carry out hoisting with confidence and safety is dramatically increased.
LOLER regulations (Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Requirements, 1998) aim to ensure that all lifting equipment and lifting accessories in the workplace are used in a safe and appropriate manner.
The regulations state that all lifting equipment should have suitable strength and stability for its designed use. LOLER also states that the Safe Working Load (SWL) and maintenance dates must be clearly visible on the equipment and any faults are reported immediately.
LOLER is implemented to prevent the risk of injuries or fatalities which may occur from the use of lifting equipment within the care environment.
