How does a LOLER inspection work?
Lifting equipment such as tail lifts must be inspected regularly to ensure that they are safe to use. Failure to adhere to quality standards can result in serious injuries and even fatalities. Therefore by law, those using, controlling, or providing lifting equipment are responsible for ensuring that the machinery is up to standard and compliant with the relevant legislation.
Types of Tail Lifts
There are various types of tail lifts available on the market. The differences in lifting capacity, functionality, and operational cycle time mean that some types of tail lifts are better suited for specific uses. The 5 main types of tail lifts are:
- Column tail lifts
- Rear frame column tail lifts
- Tuckaway tail lifts
- Cantilever tail lifts
- Retractable tail lifts
