Thorough Examination

Having a valid report of Thorough Examination is a statutory legal requirement. All your lifting equipment needs to be inspected at least every 12 months depending on the type and use ensuring your equipment is in safe working order. Regular LOLER and PUWER inspections can reduce downtime of your equipment keeping your operations running safely and efficiently.

Forklift Inspections

Forklift trucks are workhorses and as such need to be operating as safely and efficiently as possible. Depending on usage and work environment your truck may require more frequent inspections. Our engineers carry out full forklift inspection under LOLER and PUWER to establish the safety of the truck. Once an inspection has been completed a report of Through Examination will be issued.
