Passenger and Goods Lift Inspection and Thorough Examination

Thorough Examination and Testing of Lifts

The Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER) introduced new requirements for the safe provision and use of lifting equipment. Regulation 9 of LOLER requires that all lifts provided for use in work activities are thoroughly examined by a competent person at regular intervals. This applies to lifts and hoists used to lift people or loads.

If you are a lift owner or someone responsible for the safe operation of a lift used at work, such as a facilities manager or supervisor, you are a ‘dutyholder’ under LOLER. This means that you have a legal responsibility to ensure that the lift is thoroughly examined and that it is safe to use. (If you are the owner of a lift used primarily by members of the public, you may also find this guidance helps you to comply with more general health and safety legal duties under the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974.)

The law requires that all lifts should be Thoroughly Examined at least every 6 months if the lift is used any time to carry people, or every 12 months if it only carries loads, or after substantial and significant repairs/ changes have been made, or following any damage to the lift. 

LOLER Inspection and Testing

What does a Lift Inspection and Thorough Examination Include?

A Lift Inspection and Thorough examination should not be confused with preventive maintenance, although they have some elements in common. Preventive maintenance usually involves replacing worn or damaged parts, topping up fluid levels and making routine adjustments to ensure risks are avoided. Thorough examination may act as a check that maintenance is being carried out properly, but is not intended to replace it. 

Lift Inspections and Thorough examinations should include the checks below. This list is not exhaustive. More detailed guidance can be found in the Safety Assessment Federation’s (SAFed) Lift guidelines.  

  • Landing and car door  and their interlocks;
  • Worm and other gearing
  • Main drive system components
  • Governors
  • Safety gear
  • Suspension ropes
  • Overload protection devices
  • Electrical devices (including earthing, earth bonding, safety devices, selection of fuses, etc)
  • Braking systems (including buffers and overspeed devices); and
  • Hydraulics
