What Is LOLER & PUWER?
Simply LOLER and PUWER are there to ensure that all lifting and handling equipment must be examined at least once a year. This is not the same as a service which is the actual work undertaken. A Thorough Examination is more like an MOT on your equipment.
Nationwide Handling are members of the Safe Contractors Association and support their code of practice.
At Nationwide Handling we can provide a Thorough Examination on all types of pallet trucks and other materials handling equipment and an engineers report will be issued on each piece of equipment checked. This is supported by a check list as specified in the approved code of practice. Each piece of equipment is then kitemark labelled with the date of the inspection and the date the next inspection is due. It provides complete peace of mind, knowing all of your equipment is certified and also knowing that your obligation to look after safety and compliance is covered.
This means Nationwide Handling as an accredited company has proved itself competent to carry out Thorough Examinations.
Under Health & Safety legislation the employer of the operator of lifting equipment (pallet truck, electric pallet truck and fork lift truck) has a duty of care to ensure the equipment is safe. Remember, all handling equipment must be examined at least once a year.
