Learn all about the regulations regarding lifting equipment and how we can get your pit jack back up to standards.

You are required to regularly maintain and test your pit jack by the Lifting Operations & Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER).

LOLER - What you need to know

In the UK, LOLER requires that lifting equipment such as pit jacks must be of adequate strength and stability. The regulations state that all lifting equipment should be fit for purpose, appropriate for the task, suitably marked and, in many cases, subject to statutory periodic 'thorough examination'. During this examination period, any defects (which are or could potentially become a danger to people) will be found and reported.

When must you examine your equipment?

Lifting equipment must be thoroughly examined in a number of situations. Your equipment must be checked before the first use, if you install at another site or if it has been subject to conditions liable to result in danger. Following the examination, any defects can be identified and if so, a service can be booked.

Where does ABCo fit into this?

Our Pit Jacks are always built using high-quality steels, ensuring strength and durability. Should you require a repair, we can offer a full factory service and complete refurbishment of your Pit Jack to ensure it complies with regulations above. Following the refurbishment, we will test your Pit Jack to confirm the performance and quality standards have been met.

Please contact us or visit Pit Jack Repair & Service for more information.
