I need some help please in designing my LOLER record sheet!

Could you give me a little guidence, as at the moment I've decided to sepperate the Climbing / Rigging / Airel rescue equipment and then each crab numbered for each so Climbing C1 Rigging R1 etc. I'd like to keep it a5 size but the ones I've reserched all seem to be A4, is this an issue.

I look forward to your advise.

Thank you Timon,
SWL - safe working load. is that a necessety or applicable?
 


With rigging equipment yes. Just mark the column ‘PPE one person’ for climbing items.
Or ‘PPE two persons’. For rescue kit.

So, climbing equipment is classed as PPE in LOLER?👍

Hi Arbor Aero,

go to the Arb association website and look up their docs. I don’t know for sure if they still do their own file on all the regs but they used to produce one which I picked up at the aa show years ago for £35. It has all the Loler, Puwer, Coshh etc and will give you a great place to start.

Good luck

It’s marked on the piece of kit when you get it or in the literature supplied with it, make a note of it from the paper work provided, it may also be on the end of the rope sheath cover. If you are inspecting your kit make sure that you or another person has had the appropriate training in inspection. Make sure you understand what it means.

A great way of understanding these things is to book on to an Arboricultural association course that covers these issues.

Your climbing kit is the most important bit of equipment in your company, look after it and religiously inspect it every time you use it, if it’s faulty replace it no matter what it costs you, your lowering gear is also as important.
