Lifting inspection software: how to comply with LOLER and streamline your systems
Businesses which use lifting equipment, whether it is owned by them or not, must comply with strict safety regulations. The Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER) – or the Irish equivalent, the GA1 – require them to carry out regular inspections, record the results and report any faults to the relevant people or authority.
LOLER inspection software makes it easy to comply with the regulations, speed up the reporting process and reduce costs. CoreRFID’s CheckedOK system is the leading lifting inspection system in the UK and Ireland and is fast becoming the leading system worldwide. CheckedOK also helps companies to comply with many other regulatory standards such as PUWER and Health and Safety at Work.
Working with the LEAA
The Lifting Equipment Engineers Association (LEEA) is established worldwide as the leading trade body for the lifting industry and has been a leader in setting and promoting standards for good working practices. By working with the LEEA we make sure that the standard features of our CheckedOK system meets its Code of Practice on the Safe Use of Lifting Equipment (COPSULE).
CheckedOK: the market-leading LOLER inspection software
CheckedOK collects data on inspections as they are carried out and ensures users have an up-to-date picture of the maintenance status of critical items of equipment. As reports are available online, information can be accessed from any site and by any staff or customers, providing a complete audit trail of who checked what and when.
CheckedOK has checklist templates for LOLER, GA1 and a wide range of other standards, however these can be tailored to individual needs.
