Thorough Examinations

With injuries and even fatalities occurring every year in the Logistics industry, it has never been more important for businesses to cover themselves in case accidents happen. Thorough Examinations is one thing every business using Manual Handling Equipment should have arranged.



A Thorough Examination must be carried out at least every 12 months. Depending on the application, the intensity of use and the nature of any attachments, the regulations may require this interval to be reduced to 6 or even 4 months. The person carrying out the Thorough Examination will be able to determine the appropriate interval. The same person should also  be consulted for advice on whether planned changes to the truck’s operation or configuration will alter this interval.
