When a lifting appliance fails the consequences can be far-reaching. Serious injury and death can occur, not just to personnel but to the general public. When equipment fails, the cost of disrupted operations can also be considerable.

Health and safety law therefore places a number of specific obligations on those providing, controlling and using lifting equipment to properly manage these risks.

In addition to the requirements for safe design and construction, all lifting equipment should also be checked and maintained as necessary to keep it safe
for use.

Various national regulatory schemes require that lifting appliances should be thoroughly examined by a ‘competent person’ at least once every 12 months. Some legal frameworks may require more frequent examinations, depending on the national authority, the competent person, and whether the equipment is used for lifting personnel.
