What is a Thorough Examination?
You think of it as a fork lift truck’s equivalent of a car’s MOT test. Just as a car needs to be tested, and must hold a current MOT certificate, a fork truck (This means any truck with forks – including all counterbalance, warehouse, telehandling and rough terrain machines) needs to be examined, and must hold a current report of Thorough Examination. But for fork trucks the law is more demanding: examination is required as soon as the truck is a year old – and may be needed once, twice or even four times a year, depending on the truck and its use.
