What is covered by a Loler Inspection/Thorough examination?
This depends on the professional judgement of the competent person undertaking the examination, but needs to include all matters which affect the safety of the lifting equipment, including likely deterioration with time.
For most common lifting equipment and accessories, there are industry standard procedures and criteria which a competent person would follow when undertaking thorough examinations and making judgements as to the continued safety of the equipment. Methods used include:
- visual examination and functional checks
- measurements of wear
- (in some cases) traditional NDT (non-destructive testing) and load testing
Some disassembly or internal examination of parts may also be required.
Where an examination scheme has been drawn up, this should identify and specify:
- the parts to be thoroughly examined
- the methods of examination and testing
- the intervals for examination (and testing of the different parts, where appropriate)
The scheme should also include details of any other inspection regimes for the equipment. Examination schemes may be drawn up by any person with the necessary competence. This does not need to be the same competent person who conducts the thorough examination in accordance with the scheme.
Although examination schemes do not need to be preserved in the form of a document, it should be possible to produce a written copy when required (eg on request by the relevant enforcing authority). These should be secured from loss or unauthorised modification.
