Compact Access can help your business comply with the LOLER regulations, and more importantly keep your platforms safe!
We have qualified field service engineers available to carry out the mandatory Thorough Examinations on your access equipment, either at your premises, or at our workshop.
A full visual, operational and mechanical examination in accordance with LOLER 98 will be carried out. The engineer’s Report of Thorough Examination will be issued if the equipment meets with all the relevant criteria.
In the event that your equipment fails, we can quote to rectify and arrange for any necessary repairs to be carried out and re-issue the Report of Thorough Examination.
We offer free no-obligation advice to any business operating lifting or access equipment in understanding LOLER examinations, the safety regulations and any implications it has for you as the owner.
LOLER Health & Safety Requirements
Regular thorough examinations, i.e LOLER 98 inspections, are essential to the safe working and operation of your access platforms (cherry pickers, boom lifts, scissor lifts, MEWP’s).
Current Government legislation states that the employer or owner must be responsible for any lifting equipment on site, and is legally obliged to maintain it in a safe working condition for the use of their employees.
The Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 98 (LOLER) states that all equipment must be thoroughly examined by a competent person at least every 6 months or more frequently if used in a hostile environment'. The Report of Thorough Examination must be kept on file and readily available when requested.
Access Platforms are robust machines but they are not indestructible.

So, if you suspect that yours is not operating the way it should or just need a service then, don't hesitate to contact us.
