Arrangements for safe use of untested LOLER pupil hoist slings
Pupil hoist sling testing should have been carried out during May 2020. However, as pupils are not attending school due to the COVID 19 Pandemic, their slings are unavailable to be tested.
Please be assured that Victoria School is following the Health and Safety Executive advice and have put in place rigorous safety checks of the pupils’ slings who are attending school, for the period until school is fully open and LOLER testing can be resumed.
If your child’s sling is found to have defects by Victoria School’s Manual Handling Staff, you will be informed and must send an alternative to school with your child.
Thank you for your cooperation.
