In some instances, for example, any “Man-Up” lifting equipment, require a Thorough Examination every 6 months.
Thorough Examination is required by law, and must take place at regular intervals that depend on the type of truck you’re running… but it will certainly be at least once a year… often more. Give us a call to find out when your next Thorough Examination is due.
However, NOT all Thorough Examinations are created equal. It is crucial to ensure that your Thorough Examinations comprehensively cover both the lifting and the driving mechanisms of the truck.
For peace of mind, it makes sense to get your Thorough Examination from a CFTS-accredited Company. The CFTS seal is your guarantee that your truck will actually be examined carefully, and that key components such as brakes and steering will be checked along with the lifting mechanism.
