All forklift fork inspections must follow the requirements of the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations LOLER) 1998; the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER) 1998; BITA Guidance Notes GN62(rev 2) and GN28(rev 5); FLTA Technical Bulletin TB12 and ISO 5057:1993.

Over time and use, forklift fork heels can wear leading to a significant reduction in capacity and potential fork failure. When a fork has reached its 10% wear limit it must be removed from service immediately.

If the fork is worn close to 10% wear, the competent person shall make a decision on timescales for replacement based on truck usage, working conditions and any other site critical factors.
