Confusion over forklift examination

Leicester, UK: Many forklift operators are confused about the meaning of “Thorough Examination”, says Toyota Material Handling UK.

“Thorough Examination is a clear, definitive procedure which ensures a consistent, high national standards for safe, genuine and regular examinations of forklift trucks in line with Puwer and Loler regulations. The national accreditation scheme for Thorough

Examination is Consolidated Fork Truck Services, an accredited body made up of the British Industrial Truck Association and the Forklift Truck Association and is responsible for administering national accreditation to companies carrying out Thorough Examinations.

Phill Bird, after sales director at Toyota Material Handling UK says: “Like an MOT for a car a Thorough Examination is a legal requirement for lifting equipment, unfortunately confusion arises when customers believe a Thorough Examination is part of a standard service and are not clear on the benefits of a Thorough Examination carried out by a CFTS accredited company”.
