Jane Wragg, a specialist prosecutor for the Crown Prosecution Service, recently prosecuted a company for Corporate Manslaughter following a crane accident that killed an employee. This course will cover current legal duties and best practice to enable supervisors and those responsible for using equipment to understand the LOLER regulations and how to impart best practice arising from the law.
Why you should attend this course
LOLER place duties on people and companies who own, operate or have control over lifting equipment. Lifting operations must be properly planned by a competent person, appropriately supervised and carried out in a safe manner. On completion of the course, delegates will be aware of the safe practices and correct procedures required under the LOLER approved code of practice.
Who should attend
Suitable for anyone in charge of a workplace that requires lifting equipment and those who operate lifting equipment as part of their job role.
