Forklift MOT in Leicestershire
Why Service Your Forklift Truck?
In 1998 the government instigated two Acts that directly affected the use of materials handling equipment in the workplace. These included:
- LOLER 98 (Lifting Operations & Lifting Equipment Regulation 98). Effectively an MOT for forklift trucks and warehouse equipment
- PUWER 98 (Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 98) that inspects specifically the safety items associated with the machine.
The employer of the operator of the forklift truck or warehouse equipment is ultimately responsible for ensuring that the equipment is inspected, documented and that resulting actions are taken accordingly.
Brindley Lift Truck Services Leicester can provide certified inspectors to carry out these inspections ensuring compliance of your business to these two Acts.
