All material handling equipment trucks are subject to a statutory inspection under The Lifting Operation and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER 1998).

    • A Thorough Examination is a systematic and detailed examination of the lifting equipment and safety-critical parts, carried out at specified intervals by a competent person who must then complete a written report.
    • The report will highlight items requiring rectification and applicable timescale for completion.
    • The examination is mandatory by law and ensures that the mechanical parts of the fork truck are regularly inspected to keep the fork truck safe to use when operated to manufacturers recommendations.
    • The examination covers all parts of the industrial lift truck, including attachments and accessories.

Note: An inspection as part of a normal scheduled truck service is not a Thorough Examination.


In accordance with HSE LOLER Approved Code of practice and guidance L113.
