In the UK, If you own or operate a forklift, you are required by law to ensure that you hold records of thorough examinations carried out (Like a Forklift MOT). This also applies to forklifts on hire.
What happens if I don’t adhere to LOLER Regulations?
Failure to comply with LOLER regulations can leave you open to prosecution and could invalidate your insurance or much worse in the case of a serious accident arising from faulty equipment.
Fortunately, a comprehensive national scheme (Thorough Examinations) is available that complies fully with all current legislation and is supported by HSE.
What can Acclaim Handling help with?
Acclaim Handling is accredited by the CFTS, the standard created by the United Kingdom Materials Handling Association; and can carry out thorough examinations. Remember, the national Thorough Examination procedure can only be carried out by a competent person from accredited companies. We have proved ourselves capable of – and committed to – meeting the strict Quality Assurance Procedural Code of CFTS.
