Your annual Thorough Examinations taken care of
Annual Thorough Examinations for your materials handling equipment can be arranged through our national service support team to help fulfil your health and safety obligations.
What is a Thorough Examination?
A Thorough Examination is like an MOT for a car that must be carried out and reported on separately from routine maintenance. A detailed inspection of all the safety related areas of the equipment is undertaken. In addition to the brakes, steering, tyres etc. being checked under PUWER 98 all the lifting components, hydraulics, chains, forks etc are inspected in accordance with LOLER 98.
Your legal requirements covered
The law states that all forktrucks must undergo a Thorough Examination annually at the very least, however, certain equipment such as equipment that lifts people, equipment with specialist attachments or equipment operating in harsh environments such as a tanneries and cold stores may require more frequent examinations. Grant Handling will put in place a schedule of visits suitable to your particular application.
