Compliance Inspection Services Ltd, established in 2003 and located in Wakefield, performs lifting equipment inspections across the North of England and on a full nationwide basis. Businesses using lifting equipment have a legal responsibility to have it inspected, and maintained, under the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations (LOLER) 1998.
Current LOLER Regulations demand that all lifting equipment in the workplace fulfils the following criteria:
• Safely positioned and installed to manage risks
• Strong enough, and stable enough, for intended use
• Clearly marked to indicate the safe working load
• Used and organised by competent members of staff
Have lifting equipment thoroughly examined by a competent individual at specific periods of time, where appropriate. The team at Compliance Inspection Services Ltd has 55 years of combined experience and a thorough understanding of the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations (LOLER) 1998.
Our in-service inspection engineers can perform lifting equipment inspections locally, regionally or nationwide. Our convenient location in Wakefield gives us immediate access to the M1 and M62 motorways for a more reliable service, tailored to your needs.

Whether you own just one item of lifting equipment or hundreds, we can offer you free independent advice on inspections over the telephone.

LOLER Regulation 9 states that all lifting equipment must undergo inspection to comply with the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations (LOLER) 1998. Any item or piece of machinery used in the workplace to lift or lower loads, including attachments, anchors, fixtures and supports, falls into the category of lifting equipment.
LOLER 1998 Regulations apply to many different types of equipment, from overhead cranes and mobile work platforms, to goods and passenger lifts. Even accessories, like eyebolts, chains and slings, require the appropriate certification.
