Thorough Examination

Thorough Examination Certificate

ES Forklifts Ltd have certified engineers trained to carry out Thorough Examination on all types of material handling equipment.  On passing the test, an FLTA certificate can be issued by the engineer which is recognised by the insurance companies. This cert helps the employer comply with the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Regulations 2007 and Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 regarding the safety of the Forklift.

All types of Forklift trucks, of which there are many designs, become dangerous pieces of equipment if they are not maintained adequately and services regularly, or if they are operated incorrectly.

It is estimated that there are some 30,000 trucks in operation in Ireland and serious accidents are far too frequent. Many Forklift truck accidents have serious economic consequences and many incur serious harm to individuals. There are about 900 lift truck accidents resulting in injury each year.

Too many of these accidents are caused by poor maintenance.
The proper inspection of lifting equipment can help reduce accidents and hence help reduce the possibility of injury or death.
