Thorough examination test:

We are fully credited by the CFTS to carry out thorough examination tests and issue certification.

If you own or operate a truck, you are required by law to ensure that it holds a valid report of Thorough Examination.

A Thorough Examination is a detailed inspection of all the safety related parts of a forklift truck. As well as the brakes, steering, tyres, etc, being checked under LOLER 98 also all of the lifting components, hydraulics, chains, forks, etc are inspected in accordance with LOLER 98. Required at least once every 12 months (6 months if the operator is raised off the floor)  A Thorough Examination is not part of the maintenance process and must be carried out and reported separately.
