At Approved Fork Trucks, we have a team of fully qualified engineers who can carry out thorough examinations, also known as LOLER (Lifting Operations & Lifting Equipment Regulations). This is an annual check that is required under health and safety legislation.
If you own a forklift truck or even hire it on a long term basis (12 months or more) then you have a legal obligation to ensure the equipment is safe for you and your workers. To make it easy for you, we can even come to your unit and complete your examination, however, if you’d prefer, you can also come to our workshop in Leicester. This check is very similar to a cars’ MOT, as we check for any kind of problems with it to ensure it is driving safely such as, measurements of wear, load testing and sometimes internal examinations may be carried out too. Once the check is completed, you will receive a certificate that will say that your vehicle is fit for use for another year.
The longer you leave them the more expensive they will be to fix and the bigger the risk will become for your employees leading to injuries or fatalities. When you choose Approved Fork Trucks to carry out your thorough examination you will receive annual notifications from our team, so you are aware when your certificate expires meaning your next LOLER is due.
