Hook loader vehicles: Applicability of lifting regulations

Loading a skip on to the vehicle bed involves a combination of lifting and pulling or dragging. The process of loading the skip on to the vehicle bed could not be achieved without initially lifting it. The reverse sequence involves an initial lifting of the end of the skip so as to facilitate its lowering to the ground. Therefore, hook-loaders are within the scope of Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER).
