Businesses often spend time researching the most effective ways to manage their waste policy, but this can also result in a higher percentage of accidents occurring, as more employees are handling equipment or need to be in the immediate vicinity, which can lead to injuries if someone is not properly trained on how to use said equipment. Skips can provide an ideal way of dealing with substantial amounts of rubbish, and in the right situations are perfectly safe to use.
Before making a purchase of one of our skips, it’s important to understand the differences between them and how they should be safely handled. Otherwise, you could end up using the wrong equipment or techniques and causing damage or injuring yourself.
Automatic and self-tipping skips are a safe way of handling large quantities of waste in one go. The skips are manufactured from steel to provide an extremely durable and hardwearing structure. Once the tipping skip is full, it can be moved using a standard lift truck, and we can provide a range of these through our site, including both powered and manual versions. Mini mobile tipping skips can be ordered for lesser amounts of waste, but they still provide you with the same robust structure.
The other types of skips that are available through the website include tilting skip bins. These are easy to handle and move using the three wheels and a handle, and they provide a secure means of transporting waste, as the latch has to be removed before the bin will tip.
When you’re moving waste from different areas of a site on a regular basis, it could be a sensible idea to invest in one of the wheelbarrow skips. These are manufactured to provide you with a high level of durability and the supports ensure that the load is safe while it’s moving.
