If you own or operate a forklift truck, you are required by law to ensure it meets the safety requirements of a Thorough Examination. A Thorough Examination meets and exceeds your obligations under LOLER 98 and PUWER 98.
It is a legal requirement that applies to all trucks with forks (including counterbalance, warehouse, telehandling and rough terrain) and lifting accessories, including trucks you own lease or hire.
Failure to comply can leave you open to prosecution, invalidate your insurance or lead to an accident due to faulty equipment.
Check your inspection plan to make sure you are covered. Truckmasters are accredited by CFTS (Consolidated Fork Truck Services Ltd) to carry out Thorough Examinations. Truckmasters ensure that Thorough Examination inspections carried out by our service team follow the strict CFTS procedural code and conform to all required legislation in this area.
