New videos strive to lower costs and improve health and safety
Published: 21 May 2012 - Heather Ramsden
With stricter health and safety guidelines and more pressure to drive down costs, a new series of video guides from Briggs Equipment will help forklift fleet managers ensure safe working practices and identify areas where savings can be made.
The video guides, which can be viewed on Briggs's YouTube channel, span a range of topics including correct gas bottle changing, pre-shift checks and safe battery charging and topping. The step-by-step guides offer best practice tips and advice with demonstrations and instructions.
Experts at Briggs, which is Great Britain's sole national distributor for Yale Europe Materials Handling products, also feature in the videos, informing viewers on how to pre-plan for seasonal demands and what to consider when purchasing used equipment.
In addition, the company has opened its doors to give viewers a behind the scenes look at its operations - from the support given by its service centre to the engineering carried out in the workshop.
Richard Close, Briggs Equipment's CEO, commented: "We strive to help customers in any way that we can to inform and educate them about running forklift truck fleets safely, efficiently and cost effectively. Launching our YouTube channel is a step forward in this direction and more video guides will be produced on subjects that will be most beneficial to fleet managers as well as the wider industry."
