ukBMB fork lift cabs and canopies can help with safety for the driver as well as improving productivity in the workplace for the employer.
(PRWeb UK) November 28, 2010
Fork lift trucks (FLTs) are familiar vehicles in many businesses around the UK and are often considered indispensable. They play an increasingly important role within the workplace moving heavy loads safely and enabling a reduction in manual handling. The number of FLTs in use in organisations has risen as management look for increased efficiencies and safer working practices.
With increased use of FLTs come several issues that can affect productivity on site. Changing weather conditions for example can often halt a project, losing employers time and money. As we enter what is forecast to be another wet, cold winter, companies who operate FLTs will be aware of the potential lost man hours that bad weather can bring. Fitting a fork lift cabs from ukBMB can increase productivity by allowing FLTs to work in the bad weather keeping the driver warm and dry. ukBMB can also supply fork lift cab heaters so that the truck driver can continue to work in the cold – no more down time due to cold, bad weather.
From reinforced double stitched fork lift canopies of the highest quality, to strong solid steel cabs, ukBMB specialises in tailored accessories to exactly suit its customers’ needs.
ukBMB’s screens and weather guards are a particularly good investment when conducting outside work. Designed and manufactured to the highest quality, all seams are double stitched and reinforced for additional strength and durability. All canopy components are secured in place by a combination of heavy duty Velcro, Zips, High Impact Magnets and Awning Strip Attachments ensuring safety and endurance.
Ensuring all equipment meets rigorous health and safety requirements is another issue. Fork Lift Truck Driver safety is often compromised by the addition of a DIY cover added to the trucks overhead guard. The DIY cover will typically be made from packing material, wrap film, duct tape etc. This type of cover WILL obscure the lift as soon as it passes the drivers eye level. The only way for a driver to see the lift will be to lean out of the protection given by the overhead guard, leading to a potentially highly dangerous situation.
ukBMB’s range of forklift cab kits start at just £89.00 for a PVC Top Cover, which has a clear “UVC” stabilised section that allows a clear view of the lift and so eliminates such potentially dangerous situations.
