LOLER Testing

Care & Nursing Homes LOLER Testing

To comply with the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998, hoists and patient lifting equipment must be examined periodically (typically every 6 months) to ensure that it is safe not only for the patient being lifted but for the person operating the equipment.

We can support your equipment with a service contract to ensure that it all remains in perfect working order and operating within the law.

Ability plus will take the headache out of your LOLER compliance. We will do a full audit of your equipment and then hold the asset register, your equipment will then be automatically serviced and inspected every six months. We will then supply you with certificates and hold copies of our own. Helping to ensure that any CQC compliance issues area adhered to.

Because we only cover Kent with our own locally employed engineers our call out times and service levels are second to none, as well as some of the most competitive rates on the market. For a no obligation site visit or further information please call 01634 375537 and speak with our General Manager – Rob Wilcock to discus your requirements.
