Full Product Description

LEEA’s Code of Practice for the Safe Use of Lifting Equipment (COPSULE) provides expert guidance on safe lifting practice. It is currently in its eighth edition (revised September 2015).

  • Comprehensive guidance – over 500 pages
  • Easy to use – full index for quick reference
  • Authoritative – written by industry experts
  • Up to date – revised to incorporate current industry practice

The COPSULE is a reference source for operating, maintenance, training and purchasing procedures relating to lifting equipment. It identifies and addresses the common causes of lifting and handling accidents, promoting safer working practices and helping to ensure all staff in positions of responsibility comply fully with relevant health and safety legislation.

Based on LEEA’s impartial, in-depth expertise and experience, the COPSULE covers both the general issues applicable to all lifting and handling operations and a wide range of specific equipment types. These include hand and power operated chain blocks and hoists, winches, girder trolleys, clamps, slewing jib cranes, runways, mobile gantries, jacks, slings, shackles, eyebolts, lifting beams, spreaders and frames, and electric overhead travelling cranes.
