Forklift Truck Safety Inspections
If you own or operate a Forklift Truck, you are required by law to ensure that it holds a report of Thorough Examination. This even applies to trucks on hire. All Radnes hire vehicles hold appropriate certificates.
Radnes Services Ltd is an accredited company, able to carry out the new national Thorough Examination procedure, which meets the requirements of both LOLER 98 and PUWER 98 legislation.
A proportion of accidents each year result from unsafe trucks. No matter how well maintained a machine may be, it’s safe condition still depends on rigorous and regular inspections. The new National Thorough Examination procedure meets the requirements of both LOLER 98 and PUWER 98 legislation. In many ways it is like an automotive MOT, but it is much more rigorous. It is a legal requirement that applies to every Fork Lift truck – including trucks that are just one year old. Crucially, as an owner or user, you are responsible. The new national Thorough Examination procedure has a full audit trail which ensures that all examinations are recorded and, where necessary, checked by an Independent Inspector.
Remember, only Thorough Examinations carried out under this scheme are subject to the rigorous CFTS Quality Assurance Procedural Code and endorsed by the quality mark.
