It’s okay to go to a party with just a bag of chips, but what happens when you bring that bag of chips plus some good salsa. You’ve just instantly made the bag of chips a more valuable commodity!
The same principle applies to your forklift equipment. We all know how much work your forklift puts in at your material handling facility or distribution center. You may be congratulating yourself on purchasing, leasing or renting that forklift. You can actually see the benefits: more productivity, increased efficiency, less workman comp claims and a better bottom line. But are you getting the most out of your forklift fleet? Are you making it a more valuable commodity?
Best practices call for using your forklift in the smartest manner possible. One of the best ways to accomplish this is to make use of proper forklift attachments to get the job done. Sure, in many cases, you can ask your operators and your forklifts to attempt to complete a task without the proper forklift attachment, but you’ll most likely soon realize that you are decreasing productivity and efficiency – and quite possibly increasing injuries.
