How often should a passenger lift be inspected?

One of the most frequently asked questions about the inspection of passenger and goods lifts here at Plant Inspection Services is ‘how often should a passenger lift be inspected?’

LOLER testing (Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998) states that inspections must be carried out at regular intervals to ensure that any lifting equipment is as safe as possibly can be. A passenger lift must undergo a LOLER inspection every 6 months.

What is a Thorough Examination under LOLER?

During a LOLER inspection, a ‘thorough examination’ is carried out. This is a systematic and detailed examination of both visual and functional checks, performing a vital part of lift maintenance.

Who can carry out an inspection of passenger and goods lifts?

Under LOLER, the competent person undertaking lifting equipment inspections must have ‘appropriate practical and theoretical knowledge and experience’ of the equipment. It also states that they must be sufficiently independent and impartial.
