Thorough Examination for Forklifts
Thorough Examination is a vital safety inspection.
If you are the operator of a forklift truck, even if you are only hiring it, it is your obligation to make sure it holds an up to date Report of Thorough Examination. It is up to you to arrange for a Thorough Examination at least every twelve months – it is the responsibility of the user, not the hire company.
A Thorough Examination is a bit like a car MOT – it sets the standards to say that all the aspects that are connected with safety have been inspected and assessed as being safe at the time of the test.
