TotalKare has strengthened its relationship with longstanding customer Keltruck Limited following the renewal of the Scania distributor’s service and maintenance contract.
Keltruck is the largest independent Scania distributor in Europe, serving the Midlands and South Wales with over 450 employees in 20 locations. The company provides an all makes insurance-approved accident repair service for cabs, bodywork & chassis from its specialist repair centres.
Keltruck’s latest maintenance package from TotalKare provides them with a ‘fixed labour’ contract ensuring their vehicle lifts are covered for all lifting regulations stated by the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER) and The Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER), as well as benefiting from free call out, travel and labour.
The package will also see Keltruck’s vehicle lifting equipment independently inspected over the next 12 months, with a view to more than 20 Reports of Thorough Examination being issued to ensure compliance with LOLER regulations.
Systematic and detailed examination
According to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), a Report of Thorough Examination is a “systematic and detailed examination of the equipment and its safety-critical parts, carried out at specified intervals by a competent person who must then complete a written report.”
Whilst PUWER covers the proper maintenance and servicing of all workshop equipment and is generally well understood, the provision of LOLER is often overlooked. Reports of Thorough Examination are additional to planned maintenance required by PUWER and should be seen as a complete set of requirements for your heavy-duty vehicle lifts in the workshop, which is why TotalKare provides a Report of Thorough Examination as a contract addition.
Keltruck committed to high quality suppliers
Andrew Bentley, General Manager (Marketing & Business Development) for Keltruck, said “Keltruck Limited is committed to high quality suppliers with high standards, quality and safety in mind. This is why we have carefully chosen TotalKare.”
James Radford, Sales and Marketing Director for TotalKare, said “The importance of regular servicing and maintenance of vehicle lifts and other workshop equipment is well understood within the industry, but to fully comply with the latest health and safety legislation such as LOLER, Reports of Thorough Examination should also be carried out. TotalKare can ensure that the reports are carried out regularly, in line with all current regulations, leaving workshop operators to get on with their daily duties.”
