Forklift servicing

A lack of forklift maintenance can lead to serious accidents. It can also result in the breakdown of the equipment and unscheduled stoppages to the work process.

Regulation 5 of the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER 98) states: “Every employer shall ensure that work equipment is maintained in an efficient state, in efficient working order and in good repair”. This is primarily to ensure that the equipment is safe, but it also has implications for productivity.

A sound system of daily or pre-shift checks on your forklift is the cornerstone of good maintenance. This ensures that essential fluids are kept topped up and potential defects are identified before they become a problem.

Forklift trucks have chains, cylinders, valves and seals, all of which are vulnerable to the ingress of dirt of any description. This dirt will cause such components to deteriorate and fail prematurely. Premature failure leads to disruptive unscheduled maintenance and extra cost. In addition, trucks that operate with or around corrosive materials will be exposed to possible damage to these components as well as the chassis, bodywork, cab etc..

FORKLIFT SERVICEOur Forklift Servicing and planned maintenance.

At ACJN forklifts our team of skilled service engineers, are trained to the highest standards, they are also fully trained Inspectors. Their service vehicles are fully equipped to ensure that your forklift is maintained properly and to the manufacturers recommendations.

Regular, forklift servicing should be scheduled in accordance with the recommendations of the manufacturer of your equipment. The time interval between the various services and inspections will vary according to the intensity of use and the working environment. Forklift trucks are regarded as “plant” for maintenance purposes and time intervals are recorded in hours. At ACJN we state this in months to help you determine the planned dates for maintenance activity.

A Thorough Examination is a statutory requirement for lifting equipment under the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER 98), Regulation 9. It has the same purpose as an MOT inspection by providing a report which identifies that your forklift equipment is safe to use. It is just as important as an MOT – probably more so! There is a legal requirement for a Thorough Examination to be carried out on forklift trucks at least once a year, and often more frequently depending on conditions of use.
