Lifting device in use

Patient lifting devices

LOLER and PUWER regulations require all equipment used for the lifting of people to undergo a thorough service/inspection at least 6 monthly. Inspections are to be performed by a competent person and the findings of the inspections recorded. Any accessories used in lifting should also be inspected every 6 months this would typically be items such as patient slings.

TAG Medical are trained by leading manufacturers to service, inspect, repair and install a variety of patient lifting devices satisfying PUWER AND LOLER requirements. Upon completion reports are issued detailing tests undertaken on each device, each item is clearly labelled with a service sticker for traceability relating back to the individual document.
