Guidance on Thorough Examinations

June 2017 has seen ALLMI release its revised Guidance Note 010 'Thorough Examination & Testing of Loader Cranes’.  Produced via the Association’s Technical Standards Committee, GN010 has been significantly expanded and now covers a vast array of topics relating to this important subject, including:

  • Applicable legislation.
  • Definitions of the ‘Competent Person’ and ‘Independence’.
  • Required tests and the frequency at which they should be conducted.   
  • Thorough examination of attachments.
  • Required content of a ‘Report of Thorough Examination’.
  • Procedures for booking a thorough examination.
  • Management training.
  • Monitoring of examiners.
  • Thorough examinations performed by non-service / repair companies.  

The guidance is aimed primarily at persons / companies conducting thorough examinations, as well as those that own and operate lorry loaders.  However, it is also of relevance to any other persons who may be deemed a duty holder under the requirements of the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations (LOLER) 1998, or the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER) 1998.
