Appropriate maintenance of your material handling equipment is an essential part of every employer’s legal and moral responsibilities. The Health & Safety Executive (HSE) guidelines recommend that safety-critical material handling equipment is regularly serviced and maintained, with repairs carried out as needed, so that the equipment doesn’t degrade to the point that it’s a danger to people or property. The specific servicing or maintenance schedule will vary for each different piece of equipment, depending on a number of factors, such as:
- The level and regularity of use
- The environment in which the equipment operates
- Any exposure to extremes in temperature or the elements
- The experience and level of knowledge of the operator
Action Handling offer a range of different options when it comes to servicing, repair and maintenance, including site visits to carry out thorough examinations of equipment to check for any degradation or other issues which could potentially put people or property at risk.
We can service your lifting equipment, including hydraulics and pallet trucks, which will help your apparatus to keep working as it should, for longer. Our on-site servicing, maintenance and repairs will help to ensure that any degradation or other potential issues are spotted early, before they become a risk, enabling standard repairs to be done in good time.
