If you operate a forklift truck, you have a legal obligation to ensure that it holds a valid Report of Thorough Examination.
This applies whether you own, lease or hire the truck. If you fail to comply with this legislation you could invalidate your insurance and you are putting yourself at risk of prosecution, or even a serious accident that could occur due to faulty equipment.
A true Thorough Examination takes account of two different sets of Health and Safety regulations, commonly known as LOLER 98 and PUWER 98.
The formal legal requirement for Thorough Examination of fork lift trucks is set out in the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (known as LOLER 98), regulation 9.
However, these rules only apply to the truck’s lifting mechanism – and under the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (known as PUWER 98), regulation 6, an employer also has a duty to perform regular “inspections”, and ensure work equipment remains safe to use.
