What is an Appointed Person in Construction?

In lifting operations, an appointed person is someone who is responsible for the execution and safety of a lifting operation.
A hugely responsible position.
In terms of an official definition for an ‘Appointed Person’, Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER) state that an employer must ensure that each lifting operation is planned by a ‘competent person’.
