Materials handling equipment
The movement of materials and goods, regardless of the industry, forms some of the most necessary tasks in daily activities. Whether this requires lifting equipment, specific equipment for handling certain goods, industrial trucks for transporting, even storage equipment to know it’s meeting the needs of the products – handling equipment will vary greatly between businesses.
Standards can guide business practices and provide the framework for specific handling equipment needs. They can assist with identifying & testing handling methods, ensure quality of the product throughout such processes and provide guidance on best practices.
