A new date for the first 2022 Report of Thorough Examination course has just been released.

If your workplace has lifting equipment or lifting accessories like the ones below, they are required by law to be checked and examined to ensure they are safe to use.

Report of Thorough Examination

This is a 2 day training course for will give you the knowledge and the skills to be able to issue LOLER certification for Small lifting equipment and accessories. So what’s covered?

Lifting Equipment

Snatch block/ gin wheels, pull-lifts / lever hoists, hoists /runways, Tirfor type pull / lift machine, manual chain blocks, tripod & winch, fall protection equipment, safety harness / lanyards / fall arrest blocks are some examples of the lifting equipment used within the workplace that are covered on this course.

Lifting Accessories

Accessories include slings, shackles, hooks, wire rope, clamps, trolleys, grabs, beams.

The person carrying out these checks is a Lifting Equipment Inspector.  This check is officially called ‘A Report of Thorough Examination’ and is required to be conducted by a person appropriately practical who has the theoretical knowledge and experience of the lifting equipment to conduct and issue the report.  Identifying any defects or weaknesses and assessing their importance in relation to the safety and continued use of the lifting equipment.

Although the competent person may often be employed by an external organisation, this is not necessary provided they are sufficiently independent and impartial to ensure that in-house examinations are made without fear or favour. However, this should not be the same person who undertakes routine maintenance of the equipment as they would then be responsible for assessing their own maintenance work.

We can train your staff to become a Lifting Equipment Inspector and they can then perform these Thorough Examinations in-house for your organisation.
