When it comes to workplace safety, one of the most potentially hazardous operations involves the movement and lifting of heavy or awkward loads.
Operating or managing these processes is not for the faint hearted. Not simply because of the obvious inherent risks involved, but also because of the demands placed on organisations to comply with rigorous legal regulations designed to provide safe equipment. These regulations are the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER) and the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations (LOLER).

Organisations are faced with a demanding practical challenge when it comes to meeting the requirements of LOLER & PUWER because of the complexity and scale of their lifting equipment assets.
The legal requirement to maintain, track and audit lifting equipment diligently is not always the easiest of tasks, That’s because medium and large organisations have large asset registers where individual items of equipment have to be tested/inspected with different intervals or at different times.
What’s more, organisations need to know what the “state of readiness” is for every individual piece of lifting equipment in its asset register. In other words has it been withdrawn from service, is it in the repair workshop or actually in use.
