Manual handling equipment includes a range of products which is designed to move, lift and transport goods. This can range from sack trucks, trolleys and more and manual handling equipment is often used for heavier items.
Lifting equipment is designed to transport heavy goods and materials in the workplace and warehouses from one level or location to another. They help improve efficiency and will protect workers from injury as the labour of heavy lifting is being taken care of.
If you’re an employer, it’s the law to ensure your employees have access to the correct lifting equipment and are trained to use it safely. Manual Handling equipment such as Sack Trucks and Trolleys should be regularly inspected for faults, with any that show signs of deterioration or excessive wear and tear being replaced. As manual handling equipment is a piece of machinery, it is important that they are functioning to the highest safety standards. This poses the question of how often should manual handling equipment be checked? Equipment which is lifting people should be checked every six months whereas equipment which is just lifting goods should be checked every 12 months.
Manual Handling equipment such as Sack Trucks and Pallet Trucks help reduce the risk of injury and allow employers to conform to the guidelines laid out by the HSE. However, many workplaces neglect basic inspection and maintenance recommendations on their lifting equipment which can easily lead to serious injury.
Buying your lifting equipment from PARRS helps reduce this risk, as our manual handling products undergo rigorous testing and come with a minimum 3-year guarantee for peace of mind. Not only that, but our 130 years experience in the industry has also allowed PARRS to secure long-standing relationships with leading brands such as Expresso and Ravendo, who have a reputation for unbeatable quality and reliability, and we’re proud to be the exclusive distributor of these brands within the UK.
