Uncertainty of Thorough Examination Responsibilities

Nationwide research has revealed that over 80% of supervisors and managers surveyed incorrectly hold their materials handling provider at least partially accountable for ensuring their Used Bendi or Used Flexi Forklift truck holds a current Report of Thorough Examination.

Alarmingly, 30% of surveyed people who look after operations and warehousing of one or more Bendi or Flexi fork lift trucks, believed that their service provider as the truck’s owner would be solely responsible for this essential task. This is not the case.

It is important to note that when a truck is leased or rented on a long-term basis, this responsibility remains with the employer of the driver.  He or she must make certain that a current and valid Thorough Examination Certificate is in place and available for inspection. Any change to this, making the maintenance service provider responsible, should be included in the maintenance contract.

There is a requirement under PUWER 98 for all work equipment to be regularly maintained in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations and under LOLER 98 for lifting equipment to be thoroughly examined to ensure it remains in a safe condition.

Fork lift truck users should ensure that their lift trucks have been thoroughly examined by a Competent Person within the previous 12 months (or sooner depending on the operational conditions).

Bexi Helping You Choose

Bexi will help you make the right choice for used Bendi forklifts and Used Flexi Forklift Trucks

If you are looking for a used Bendi Forklift or used Flexi Forklift there are few questions you need to answer before making your choice. There are 2 main types of used bendi and used flexi forklifts gas or electric but below we also offer a quick checklist which will make your choice easier and more benefical.

The list to help you select the ideal used bendi forklift or used flexi forklift is as follows - How heavy and what size are the typical loads you will need to move around the warehouse? What types of pallets will you be using euros or standards ? and how high does the load need to be lifted ? Is the forklift for indoor or outdoor use, or perhaps both ? If indoors, how wide are the narrowest of the aisles in the warehouse and what is my pallet to pallet measurement ? and finally, how many hours during the day will you be operating the forklift ?

Once you have narrowed this down, making the choice from Bexi will be a lot easier.

The Value of Flexibility with Flexi Trucks

The value of flexibility in business cannot be underestimated. Without an ability to be versatile, you won’t be able to meet any future changes in your market. Across every level of your company flexibility should be built in, from the executive desk to the warehouse.

Warehouses now need to be adaptable spaces, and therefore able to alter their layouts in keeping with current product demand. This element of versatility makes it harder for traditional forklift trucks to navigate the warehouse environment. However, there are modern alternatives, such as Flexi trucks, which are designed with modern warehouses in mind.

A Flexi fork lift is articulated, which means that it is much more adept at navigating in narrow spaces. We might think of warehouses as very open spaces, however when packed with shelves and shelves of products, space can be constrained, and an articulated forklift beneficial.

Flexi forklifts are known as narrow aisle forklift trucks. This means that they are capable of navigating narrow aisles, and if you choose Flexi G4, the most popular articulated fork lift in Europe, then you can be sure it will be able to travel even in the narrowest of warehouse constraints.

The Flexi Factor

Flexi forklifts are world renowned for their suitability and flexibility. So, whether you need one to enhance a warehouse space, or just something to better handle pallet deliveries, the very best is Flexi.

Adapting to Limited Warehouse Space with Bendi and Flexi Trucks

Commercial property doesn’t come cheap and so, like many firms, you might have to cope with a limited amount of warehouse space. Shelling out for larger premises may place too much strain on your finances, storing up trouble in the long-term.

To operate successfully in cramped conditions like this, it’s important that you have access to the very best articulated forklift trucks. By choosing the perfect models for your storage area, you can optimise your use of space.

Keeping a tight rein on your finances

The prospect of being able to move to more spacious premises might seem very distant at present. After all, economic conditions remain tough and for many companies, it’s a case of battening down the hatches and adopting a cautious approach.

Indeed, last month saw further bad news for enterprises, with the Office for National Statistics revealing that UK GDP fell by 0.2 per cent in the first quarter of 2012. This was the second successive drop in growth, meaning the country officially went into recession.

Tough times

Responding to the figures, prime minister David Cameron said they were “very, very disappointing”. Meanwhile, chancellor George Osborne added:  “It’s a very tough economic situation. It’s taking longer than anyone hoped to recover from the biggest debt crisis of our lifetime – even after the recent fall in unemployment.”

According to the politician, the economic woes around Europe are hampering Britain’s recovery.

The savvy approach

During times like this, it’s important to avoid adopting a fatalistic approach. By being proactive and seeking to improve the ways in which your firm functions, you can significantly boost your chances of long-term survival and success.
