Free web tools keep fork truck users legal

Ascot, Berkshire, UK: Thorough Examinations has launched an interactive online guide, to help forklift truck operators stay within the law.

The new Consolidated Fork Truck Services website is aimed at managers and supervisors and simplifies legal compliance for fork truck users, with a number of interactive tools.

Simon Emery, chairman of Consolidated Fork Truck Services says, “With so much legislation to consider, ensuring your truck is up to the law can be a full-time job. However, for many managers out there, keeping trucks legal comprises a small portion of their day.

“So we have created a range of web applications which quickly answer the most common questions from users on the subject of Thorough Examinations. In just a few clicks of a button, users can find out when their truck’s next examination is likely to be due, discover exactly which parts of their truck will be inspected, watch an informational video and identify which companies in their area are up to the CFTS (Consolidated Fork Truck Services) accreditation mark.

“Our new site is quite like a CFTS Thorough Examination. It is clear, concise and – above all else – comprehensive.”

Consolidated Fork Truck Services Thorough Examinations cover fork lift truck  inspection that complies with the two main pieces of legislation governing the use of fork lift trucks: LOLER 98 and PUWER 98.
