We will engage at pre-contract meetings and work closely with Clients and Designers, including those responsible for Temporary Works to facilitate hazard review workshops to ensure risk elimination or reduction.
Management of Lifting Operations (BS 7121)
The Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations (LOLER) require certain types of lifting operations to be properly planned and managed by competent personnel. The definitions of competent personnel are detailed within BS 7121 – Management of Lifting Operations and the various parts. To meet your legal obligations, we can provide Competent CPCS accredited (Blue Card) Appointed Persons to plan and manage all of your lifting operations under the CPA terms and conditions of a standard hire, significantly reducing the costs associated with a contract lifting operation.
We have been planning and managing lifting operations since 2002, with demonstrable experience of working with tower cranes, mobile cranes, overhead cranes lorry loaders, etc. We even assist with planning lifting operations using forklift trucks, telescopic handlers, excavators, winches, etc. We plan everything from basic to complex lifts, including work required to be undertaken in high risk environments. Please get in touch for further information.
Many small and medium sized business don’t always have the financial capabilities to justify employing a full-time health and safety adviser or manager, which is a legal requirement under the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations (Regulation 7), to appoint competent persons to provide health and safety assistance. This is where Infinite Fusion can help. We offer our clients a low-cost effective retainer service, and for a small annual fee we will act as your competent health and safety consultant.

You can use our details in any pre-qualification questionnaires and we will provide all details of our experience. We are on hand for full telephone support and will provide you with regular industry updates and changes in legalisation that may affect your work activities. We are here for you and want to be part of your continued success and growth.
