A Thorough Examination for a forklift truck is similar to the MOT of a car. It’s a legal requirement to ensure that the mechanical parts of your fork lift are in safe working order.
Thorough Examinations are required by law, and must take place at regular intervals that depend on the type of truck you’re running... but it will certainly be at least once a year… often more.
Your regular inspections as part of a preventive maintenance scheme or scheduled service are not a thorough examination.
