Presentation will outline the LOLER regulations from the UK, how they came about, how they differ from previous rules and guidance, how LOLER makes it easier to be safe and how the principles are very easily transferable to other industries where lifting and handling is carried out. The presentation will also touch upon the DROPS initiative, which is also of UKCS origin, but is embraced fully here in Asia with its own local administration. Emphasis will be placed on the application of LOLER principles outside Oil & Gas by showing that cranes & lifting is a universal activity across many industries and processes and dropping or mishandling something has the same consequences everywhere! Who should attend? • Lifting Engineers/ Technical Professionals; • Regulatory personnel; • Safety Officers; • PEs; • Any other interested parties. Qualified for 1 PDU by the Professional Engineers Board Singapore (applicable for Singapore-registered PEs).
