Birmingham, United Kingdom, (December 08, 2011) – Trucks Direct UK Ltd, one of the UK’s largest suppliers of quality used forklift trucks for sale and hire, comment on the release of a new interactive online forklift guide launched by CFTS (Consolidated Fork Truck Services) Thorough Examinations.

The guide is designed to help businesses ensure that their forklift trucksare fully compliant with current law and regulations, particularly for managers and supervisors with responsibilities pertaining to forklift health and safety. Essentially, the guide aims to simplify legal compliance and make the entire legislative process easier to implement and understand.

CFTS Thorough Examinations is the creator of the UK’s only nationally-agreed framework for forklift delivery. CFTS Thorough Examinations guarantees a truly comprehensive inspection that complies with both of the two main pieces of legislation governing the use of forklifts in the UK – LOLER 98 and PUWER 98.

Alex Hall, Service Manager of Trucks Direct UK Ltd, commented: “The new guide will help all end users to understand and appreciate the certification process in more detail, which we hope will contribute to widespread correct use and maintenance of forklifts in the future.”
