Why a crane supervisor?
Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations, otherwise known as LOLER, fall under the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 to ensure that all lifting equipment, including cranes, are being used in a safe manner. These regulations state that in order to be safe all operations must be planned by a ‘competent person’, and have regular examinations to ensure that their machinery is fit for purpose.
- Working with a set team to make sure all lifting operations comply with the law and that the health and safety of employees is ensured within the correct guidelines.
- That they are coordinating and supervising all lifting operations with accordance to the lifting plan.
- They will brief all the lifting team members.
- Make sure that they are present during all lifting operations.
- Making sure that the ground is safe for any operation which will be involving mobile cranes.
