LOLER 98

A Thorough Examination of a forklift is akin to an MOT for car it ensures that the equipment is tested, certified and safe to use.

Under the LOLER 98 (Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998) it is a legal requirement to ensure your truck is thoroughly examined:

  • In the case of lifting equipment for lifting persons or an accessory for lifting, at least every 6 months.
  • In the case of other lifting equipment, at least every 12 months
  • Each time that exceptional circumstances which are liable to jeopardise the safety of the lifting equipment have occurred.

All service engineers at Barek Lift Trucks are trained and certified to LOLER standards to provide the inspections that ensure your equipment is kept safe and within the current regulations.
