Safe use of lifting equipment. Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998

Approved code of practice and guidance.

Overview

For anyone with responsibility for work equipment and its use (eg employers, employees, self employed and hirers). The Approved Code and guidance reflect the Regulations applicable to all industry sectors and work activities. Colour-coded throughout to enable easy distinction between text pertaining to Regulations, the Approved Code and guidance. While documenting more obvious on-the-job issues covered by the Regulations, such as the strength and stability of lifting equipment, its positioning and installation, and the general organisation of operations, the Approved Code and guidance also acknowledge the required ancillary duties to maintain and consider, including thorough examination and inspection, reports, defect matters and good information keeping.
