About Lifting Operations Training

This awareness level course is designed to provide workers at any level who conduct lifting operations with the knowledge they need to  know to minimise risk to themselves and others.

All employees that operate lifting equipment need to be properly trained in the equipment operation, maintenance, and emergency measures to comply with LOLER regulations.

Why Is Lifting Operations Training Important?

Lifting operations are part of everyday life within building and construction sites. However, they present a wide variety of hazards. Poorly maintained equipment, unsecured loads, difficult working environments, and inadequate training all contribute to the chance of something going wrong during a lift.

According to the Labour Force Survey (LFS) approximately 20% of the workplace injuries that occur are due to lifting operation injuries.
