FEM 4.004 UVV inspection by forklift technician

FEM 4.004 (UVV test)

An FEM 4.004 inspection (formerly: UVV) must be performed annually on forklifts and warehouse equipment. The basis for this inspection is the BGV D27 regulation of the Employer's Liability Insurance Association and the Ordinance on Industrial Safety and Health. 

Exhaust gas measurement of a forklift truck

Exhaust gas test

Respiratory pollution for employees or environmental pollution - the reasons for optimizing the exhaust emissions of your truck are numerous. We use a measuring device to measure the blackening number or opacity value. 

Battery test with meter

Forklift battery testing

German law requires that electrical systems and mobile electrical work equipment be inspected once a year by a competent person in accordance with TRBS 1203. This also includes forklift batteries. We will be happy to take care of this for you.

Poor air makes you tired and listless, high temperatures in the driver's cab impair concentration - this can be dangerous, especially in warehouse operations. It is therefore important that the air conditioning system does its job reliably - we make sure of it!
