Making sense of Crane Legislation

The SCX Academy has launched a pivotal new course to help the people in charge of a company’s lifting equipment make sense of the complex laws surrounding their safe usage… ultimately keeping themselves legal and their workforce safe.

Far too often, even experienced managers and supervisors don’t fully understand exactly what is required. With two different legislative bodies covering lifting equipment (LOLER and PUWER), plus HSE guidance and British Standards to meet, ensuring that your cranes and lifting operations are legal can be confusing for even the most focused works manager.

Many don’t know the difference between LOLER and PUWER or that they need to be applied in conjunction with one another – let alone how to do so. This means that they can’t be completely sure whether their lifting operations are as safe as they can be.

Everyone in a position of responsibility for lifting equipment or operations should have a full understanding of their legal obligations, but the SCX Academy recognises that it can be confusing and so has launched this course to help.

Duncan Randall, founder of the SCX Academy, said: "The course will explain what all the different regulations mean for a company, in a way that can be clearly understood and applied to day to day operations. It will incorporate everything managers need to know, without bombarding them with irrelevant information that they don’t, in order to be legal, safe and effective. And if you know how to keep your cranes not only safe, but in top condition then they will work more efficiently, with a longer lifespan, minimising the risk of expensive downtime and ultimately making your business more productive."
