Thorough Examination is a mandatory check that is required by law to ensure that the mechanical parts of your fork lift are in safe working order and every fork lift truck must have a Thorough Examination at least once a year.

Thorough Examination is composed of two regulations ‘LOLER’ (lifting components) and ‘PUWER’ (anything that’s not lifting). If your Thorough Examination is carried out by your insurance company please make sure that they are covering both regulations. As some insurance companies only provide a ‘LOLER’ test which only covers the fork lift trucks lifting mechanisms and not the rest of the truck.
