    What is LOLER? And does it apply to my hoist lifter? Here is the HSE summary of LOLER

    Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER)

    These Regulations (often abbreviated to LOLER) place duties on people and companies who own, operate or have control over lifting equipment.

    This includes all businesses and organisations whose employees use lifting equipment, whether owned by them or not. In most cases, lifting equipment is also work equipment so the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER) will also apply (including inspection and maintenance). All lifting operations involving lifting equipment must be properly planned by a competent person, appropriately supervised and carried out in a safe manner.

    LOLER also requires that all equipment used for lifting is fit for purpose, appropriate for the task, suitably marked and, in many cases, subject to statutory periodic 'thorough examination'. Records must be kept of all thorough examinations and any defects found must be reported to both the person responsible for the equipment and the relevant enforcing authority.

    The key point is that your patient hoist will most probably need a statutory periodic 'thorough examination'. This is usually recommended to be carried out at least once a year and preferably, every six months, depending on various factors including the amount of usage the hoist experiences.
