It’s widely reported that accidents on construction sites are a common occurrence, with an average of 39 workers being fatally injured for the last five years running.
According to the Health and Safety Executive’s Fatal Injuries Arising from Accidents at Work in Great Britain 2017 report, being struck by objects and moving vehicles and contact with moving machinery are among the main causes of these injuries.
However, while awareness of the risk of injuries may be widespread on construction sites, the likelihood of them happening is a) never far away and b) an on-going risk that should never be overlooked.
It’s precisely why we developed one of our latest, game-changing forklift attachments, the Auto-Lok Tipping Skip
Not only is this fork-mounted tipping skip capable of reducing the risk of accidents, it can help boost productivity by introducing a much safer and more convenient tipping process.
Fully automatic engagement means operators can stay in their cabs for the entire time the skip’s in use. All they need to do, is drive into the fork pockets, pick up the skip and it’s ready to tip, while the automatic locking mechanism makes sure it stays firmly in position.
Featuring a high-quality watertight body and reinforced loading edge, the Auto-Lok Tipping Skip has been designed to safely tip all types of materials, ranging from soil and earth to bricks.
The development of the Auto-Lok Tipping Skip comes hot on the heels of the introduction of our Auto Tipping Skip, which often saw operators standing on mudguards or climbing on the side of yard skips to reach the release mechanism.
Bringing safety and simplicity to a whole new level
Many of our construction customers have noticed the difference this pioneering new forklift attachment has made to the speed and safety of their operations. They’re able to get on with their work and stay in their cab, which is the safest place for them on busy construction sites.
So, now that you’ve heard all about this industry-leading innovation, why not see the Auto-Lok Tipping Skip in action for yourself…
