LECOP

The LECOP is a document which deals with lifting operations from every aspect, that is, from the initial selection of lifting equipment through purchasing, storage, safe use, testing and certification and finally discard at the end of service life. This document is known as the “Lifting Equipment Control and Operations Policy” or LECOP for short.

To complement this raft of reference and safe operating procedures, there is also a set of “Rules” to try and improve the safety of personnel involved with lifting operations. These are called the “LECOP Rules”.

The purpose of this training course is to make you aware of the rules and so improve safety in lifting operations.
