Another DVD from Paragon Training, working with Lifting Equipment, LOLER, takes a closer look at lifting equipment through the new Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations Just as LOLER works hand in hand with PUWER, this DVD can be used either as a stand alone or in conjunction with Paragon’s companion video, Working safely with equipment.
With the regulations covering any work equipment used for lifting or lowering loads, plus attachments for anchoring, fixing or supporting it, this video takes you through the full gambit, from eyebolts to tower cranes. Beginning with installation, the DVD covers equipment strength and stability, stress points, safe configurations, securing loads, and safety markings.
It delves into work systems including risk assessment, maintenance, inspections, examinations, defects and reports. It considers precautions against tilting, overturning, moving or slipping, and against losing control of loads. And it pays special attention to personal safety – slips, trips, falls and their consequences crush cages and other protective devices.
Essential viewing for employers, contractors, businesses, trades, even charities … across all sectors, including construction, manufacturing, agriculture, forestry and railways. In fact, for anyone who uses, supervises, manages, or controls lifting equipment. Lifting with LOLER will
help you ensure that each and every link in the lifting chain is solid, reliable and above all, as safe as it can possibly be.
