Lift upgrade in Castleford

Lift upgrade in Castleford

Nationwide Lifts have this week completed a Lift upgrade in Castleford. This was to be carried out on behalf of a well known care group chain. The care group were very specific in what requirements they needed to be carried out and also the timeframe in which it was to be completed.

With our dedicated lift engineers we can offer any lift repair works or have the ability modernise passenger lifts, goods lifts, platform lifts dumbwaiter lifts and access products.

We have been looking after lifts on a Nationwide basis for over 50 years and assist many customers throughout England, Scotland and Wales.

Nationwide Lifts & Escalators Ltd offer a first time fix policy to clients. This means our aim is to fix the problem first time without the need for repeat visits.

We do this by finding the root cause of the problem, rather than just getting the lift running.

By having dedicated lift engineers, we ensure that we solve and rectify problem lifts. This cuts down on call-outs, costs and downtime for our clients.

Nationwide Lifts & Escalators Ltd also offer complete lift modernisation packages. We can offer lift controller replacements, lift interior upgrades, hydraulic replacements, door upgrades or replacement lift doors.

We also offer the complete turn key solution for our clients by offering builders-work and electrical work as part of our package. So when you are not wanting the upheaval of a full lift replacement, a lift modernisation solution from us is a good idea. We can often get your lift fully modernised with a new interior and all components within 2 weeks.

We only supply and fit open protocol parts to any lift repairs or modernisations. This gives the client flexibility on their lifts but also peace of mind on future works.

We believe by having the right company and right engineers as your service provider, then you can cut down on call-outs, downtime and ultimately cost.

Contact us if we can help at all for any lift repair work or Lift upgrade in Castleford. You can get in touch by emailing us at head.office@nationwide-lifts.com or FREEPHONE 0800 599 9177

LOLER Examination

LOLER Examinations

As you are probably aware there are specific requirements in place for duty holders in relation to lifts which fall under the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER). Nationwide Lifts also carry out these LOLER Examinations.

As COMPETENT PERSONS we are able to carry out THOROUGH EXAMINATIONS on your lifts. We have included below some information which we hope will be of assistance if you are a lift owner or the person responsible for the safe operation of a lift used at work, for example a facilities manager or supervisor.

The Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER), which came into force on 5th December 1998, were made under the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 (HSW Act). LOLER implements the lifting provisions of the Amending Directive to the Use of Work Equipment Directive (AUWED) (951631EC).

LOLER consolidated the requirements for the safe Provision and use of lifting equipment. Regulation 9 of LOLER requires that all lifts provided for use in work activities be thoroughly examined by a COMPETENT PERSON at regular intervals.

This applies to lifts and hoists used to lift people or loads.

If you are responsible for the safe operation of a lift then you are a DUTY HOLDER under LOLER. You have a duty of care and legal responsibility to ensure every passenger lift, goods lift and service lift has a THOROUGH EXAMINATION at least once or twice per annum dependent on the unit being examined.

This is in addition to the routine maintenance schedule, which obviously affects the safety and reliability of the lift.

The THOROUGH EXAMINATION is a systematic and detailed examination of the lift and all its associated equipment, to be carried out by a COMPETENT PERSON who is someone who has sufficient technical and practical knowledge of the lift to be able to detect any defects and assess how significant they are to determine if the lift is safe for continued use.

Any defects are to be reported to the duty holder and if appropriate, the enforcing authority ie. The Health & Safety Executive or Local Authority so the appropriate actions can be taken.

Role of the DUTY HOLDER:

  • Maintaining the lift so it is safe to use
  • Selecting and instructing the COMPETENT PERSON
  • Ensuring the lift is examined at statutory intervals
  • Keeping the competent person informed of any changes in the lift operation
  • Making all relevant documentation available
  • Acting promptly to remedy any defects
  • Ensuring that all documentation complies with the regulations
  • Accurate record keeping

It is important to realise that THOROUGH EXAMINATIONS are MANDATORY.

Please contact us if we can help further on LOLER Examinations at head.office@nationwide-lifts.com or call us on FREEPHONE 0800 599 9177. We can offer all types of lift service and maintenance work throughout England, Wales and Scotland.
