Professor Ragnar Löfstedt has conducted a review and proposed the clarifying of:
- which equipment is subject to the provisions of the Regulations; and
- the role of the competent person.
The proposed amendments will be of most interest to those that:
- work with any lifting equipment provided at work;
- employ such people;
- represent them; and
- act as a competent person in the examination of lifting equipment.
Any comments or responses must be sent to the HSE by 14 October 2014.
