For peace of mind, it makes sense to get your Thorough Examination carried out by a CFTS-accredited Competent Person. The CFTS seal is your guarantee that your truck will be examined carefully, and that key components such as brakes and steering will be checked along with the lifting mechanism.
What is a Thorough Examination?
Thorough Examination for fork lift trucks is roughly equivalent to the MOT for cars. It’s a mandatory check to ensure that the mechanical parts of your fork lift are in safe working order.
It is not the same as regular maintenance – so you need one whether or not you’ve just had the truck serviced.
Thorough Examination is required by law, and must take place at regular intervals that depend on the type of truck you’re running... but it will certainly be at least once a year… often more. To find out when your next Thorough Examination is due please call us to discuss.
