TASK 049 (6M) ARRANGE COMPETENT PERSONS INSPECTION

Procedures:

1.0 Purpose

1.1 To define a uniform procedure for the statutory inspection of Lifts and Hoists by a
Competent Person and reporting requirements.

2.0 Scope

2.1 All RFCA Sites where maintenance tasks is required to be carried out.

3.0 References

3.1 Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations (LOLER) 1998; ACoP L113.

3.2 Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER) 1998.

3.3 Safety Assessment Federation (SAFED).

4.0 Health and Safety

4.1 Client notification. Safety signs signifying Lift under Inspection and barriers placed to prevent
unauthorised access. Attendance of second person during inspection.

5.0 Responsibilities

5.1 A visual inspection of the plant and equipment by Competent Person (CP), in accordance with
and at a frequency defined by LOLER and SAFED. During the inspection the CP will satisfy
himself that the systems affecting the safe operation of the plant are correct and comply with
the reference documents stated above.

5.2 The maintenance of the plant and equipment will be reflected in the context of the CPs report
and will also allow the Senior Technician to assess whether the plant is being maintained
correctly and efficiently.

5.3 The Area Professional Advisor will determine the correct frequency of examination under the
LOLER Regulations.

6.0 Operation

6.1 The Supply Chain Partners will comply with the baseline inspection programme and will
submit a schedule of inspections to the Facility Manager in sufficient time to allow efficient
planning of the maintenance programme. An agreed schedule will then be passed to the
CP. The CP must be kept fully informed and given sufficient notice of any subsequent
changes to the schedule.
6.2 Competent Person (CP) to contact Professional Advisor team, to ensure access to
equipment is convenient to end user. Area Professional Advisor (APA) to speak to relevant
AP, if required, to allow stripping of plant as required by CP.

6.3 Permit to work to be raised as required.

6.4 The inspection is generally visual. However, on occasions, as the Regulations state,
certain items of plant will be made accessible for test and evaluation.

6.5 The CP will carry out his duties in accordance with good engineering principles
adhering to the references stated above.

MANAGEMENT OF PLANNED MAINTENANCE TASK INSTRUCTIONS

6.6 In the event of a defect/failure affecting the safe operation of the plant, appropriate
remedial action must be implemented by the Prime Contractor as soon as practically
possible and documented accordingly.

6.7 Where the defect/failure is detected during normal working hours the CP must, before
leaving site, report to the Area Professional Advisor who in turn will inform and advise the
Client of the remedial actions required. In the event of a defect/failure arising whilst the
CP is carrying out an inspection with the Contractors labour force out of normal working
hours, the reporting initiative/actions are implemented by the Prime Contractors labour
force.

6.8 Effective communication between the CP and the Area Professional Advisor offices in all
circumstances and especially with reference to that as mentioned in 6.6 is essential.

6.9 The CP should report to the Senior Technician on arrival to the site and where possible at
the end of his inspections to enable a short debrief on the state of the plant.

7.0 Records

The CP will utilise an approved e-reporting system where possible.

7.1 The minimum information to be recorded on the Certificate of Examination, is:-

Establishments address.

Identification/Description of Plant and Equipment.

Location of Plant and Equipment.

Date of Inspection.

Nature/Frequency of Inspections (LOLER)

Current status of Plant and Equipment (Observations/Defects and Remedial works).

Inspectors Name, Signature (may be authenticated electronic signature), Company Details.

Date of next inspection.

Findings from the reports will be advised to the Facilities Manager and Senior Technician.

GUIDELINES ON THE THOROUGH EXAMINATION AND TESTING OF LIFTS.


ELECTRIC AND HYDRAULIC LIFTS - EXAMINATION TESTS (H/1 H/5 AND H/10)

The Provision and Use of Works Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER) and Lifting Operations and Lifting
Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER) provide guidelines which aim to achieve consistency of examination
and testing, agreed methods of reporting and cyclical periods for the examination and test. The HSE PM7
has been withdrawn through the introduction of EEC Directives and replaced by an Approved Code of
Practice published by the Safety Assessment Federation Ltd (SAFED). Their guidelines on lift maintenance
LG1 (yearly), LG5 (5 yearly) and LG10 (10 yearly) H = Hydraulic and E = Electric Lifts, should be applied to
meet this current practice.

The following tables detail the checks to be applied at Yearly (Task 47), 5 yearly (Task 48.1 &
48.2) and 10 yearly (every other task 48.1 & 48.2)
