Forklift Thorough Examination
Unilift South Wales is an officially accredited company so we can Thorough Examine your forklift truck and make sure it is up to lawful requirements. We also provide professional forklift truck repairs so should your truck require any repairs before it can pass the Thorough Examination we can provide this service as well including parts. All of our used forklift trucks have been given a thorough examination. Not only because it gives you peace of mind but it is required by law. A Thorough Examination is for a forklift truck what an MOT is for a car.
Once your valuable forklift truck has passed the thorough examination it will be safe and legal to operate and will be given a CFTS sticker on the forklift truck. It also means your truck has satisfied both LOLER 98 and PUWER 98 regulations.
Forklift truck thorough examination explained
Any forklift truck older than twelve moths is required to have a Report of Thorough Examination. If the forklift truck is operating for your company on your premises it doesn’t matter if you own the forklift truck or whether it is hired or leased it will require a Report of Thorough Examination. Without a Report of Thorough Examination the forklift truck is not ensured and you could be liable if an accident happens. In short it is the responsibility of the employer of the forklift truck operator to make sure the equipment is safe. It goes without saying that all our second hand forklift trucks and rental forklifts come with a Report of Thorough Examination.
Even though your forklift truck requires regular maintenance these do not qualify under CFTS. CFTS is a national standard which will guarantee that you have fulfilled your obligations under both LOLER 98 and PUWER 98.
