As a reputable provider of forklift services, Forklift Services UK takes safety very seriously. To ensure that their customers' forklifts are safe to operate, the company offers a comprehensive thorough examination service, also known as a LOLER examination.
LOLER stands for Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations, which is a set of guidelines that dictate the legal requirements for the safe use of lifting equipment, including forklifts. The regulations require that forklifts undergo a thorough examination at least once a year, and more frequently if they are used more heavily or in harsh environments.
During a thorough examination, a qualified and experienced technician will inspect the forklift to ensure that it is safe to use. The examination covers a range of areas, including the brakes, steering, hydraulics, and lifting mechanism. The technician will also check for any signs of wear or damage and ensure that all safety features, such as alarms and lights, are in good working order.
If any issues are found during the examination, the technician will advise the customer on the appropriate course of action. This may involve repairs or replacement of parts to ensure that the forklift meets safety standards.
By carrying out thorough examinations on a regular basis, Forklift Services UK helps its customers to comply with LOLER regulations and ensures that their forklifts are safe to operate. This can help to prevent accidents and injuries, as well as avoid costly fines for non-compliance.
Each thorough examination generally takes around 1-2 hours depending on the truck and can be scheduled to be carried out at your premises at a time that best suits you.
