Thorough Examination (CFTS) Including LOLER

Every forklift truck requires a regular Thorough Examination by law. There are many so-called "Thorough Examinations" that simply do not meet the full requirements as they only satisfy the LOLER 98 regulations but overlook crucial parts, such as the brakes.

These type of examinations leave you open to prosecution under PUWER 98 and the Health and Safety at Work Act, even worse than this it could lead to a fatal accident in your warehouse. Even if a forklift truck is hired, the law states that you, the employer or forklift operator, are responsible for ensuring it is safe. 

Make sure you don't do Thorough Examination by half, always look for the CFTS logo to make sure the full examination is carried out, as we do here at Dechmont Forklift Trucks.
