Forklifts are considered a must-have piece of equipment in most warehouses. It would be difficult to load or unload delivery trucks and move pallets filled with products without the help of a forklift. Anytime your forklift breaks down, activity in your warehouse could come to a standstill. Become familiar with some of the common problems that plague forklifts so that you can invest in timely repairs for your own forklift in the future.
If you transport liquids of any kind, you may experience leaks or spills from time to time. These issues can happen anywhere, even when you are on the road. Depending on the liquids you are transporting, cleaning up a spill could be dangerous, time-consuming, or both. Your best option is to be prepared for spills from the start. You can carry portable spill containment berms along with the liquids you are transporting to stop problematic messes before they really start.
Hi, my name is Lewis McKinley and this is a blog about the safety of industrial equipment and supplies. When working with industrial equipment, employees must implement all safety measures to ensure they stay safe at all times. When I was growing up, my dad was a safety inspector, so my siblings and I were always reminded about safety and he taught us how to stay safe no matter what we were doing. Since I learned about safety at a young age, I always make sure that safety is a priority in everything I do. I enjoy doing research about safety and I keep up with changes in safety regulations for many industries. I hope that after you read my blog, you'll learn measures that you can take to remain safe around industrial equipment and supplies.
