Safe skip solution
21 March 2014
Forklift attachment firm Contact Attachments has provided MKM Building Supplies, the UK’s largest independent builders merchant, with one of its tipping skips to offer staff a safe and convenient way to dispose of waste products.
Tommy Stevenson at MKM said: "Prior to purchasing the skip, our staff were using dustbins mounted on pallets, which was not an option we could use going forward, and also posed a huge problem when it came to manually tipping the waste into the high-sided skip.”
The tipping skips are developed from either regular or heavy duty steel for a longer service life. They are fitted with bolted on castors to eliminate the need for welding should they need replacing, as well as security chains for ensuring the lift is securely fastened to the truck. With capacity ranging from 0.25m3 right up to 2.0m3, the tipping skips are full width to prevent customers having to dangerously lean between the skip and truck mast.
