Thorough Examination

AWE Forklifts offers thorough examinations to industries in Dublin and Ireland.
A thorough examination can be described as the National Car Test (NCT) for forklifts. However, a thorough examination, in many ways, is much more comprehensive. All forklifts, whether owned or leased, must carry a valid Report of Thorough Examination.
A Report of Thorough Examination proves that a forklift has undergone its annual thorough inspection and that the forklift conforms to the relevant safety and operating standards.
A Thorough Examination is a legal requirement. A thorough examination checks all components on a forklift that have a bearing on safety. A Report of Thorough Examination states, that at the time of testing, the forklifts components met with all safety and operating standards.

Thorough Examination FAQ

  • I’m leasing my forklift. Is it my responsibility to obtain a Report of Thorough Examination?

    Yes, the responsibility to obtain a valid Report of Thorough Examination lies with the forklift user. This is true whether you own, rent or lease the forklift. The only possible exception to this rule is if you're on a short term lease of under one year.

  • How often should a forklift undergo a Thorough Examination?

    Most forklifts are required to undergo a thorough examination every 12 months. However, if your forklift lifts people, is in an environment with corrosive materials or if the forklift is used for more than 40 hours a week, you are required to have the forklift tested every six months.
