Safety and Policy - working enviroment
Safety is an important part of a good working environment
Interthor always focuses on the safety of the user - as examples can be mentioned:
- The products are designed so that movable parts, e.g. lifting chains and wheels, are properly shielded.
- The stability of all product types has been tested in accordance with the EU norms concerning safety, and all products are CE-marked. Furthermore, the highlifter has supporting feet at steering wheel and tandem wheel on scissors legs. The tandem wheels have brake effect.
- Automatic accessories have safety switches so that the feet of the user are always protected by a clearance between floor and underside of forks or pallet.
- Electric products have emergency stops.
The products are always delivered with a very detailed instruction manual, describing in words and pictures how to operate the product safely in order to avoid accidents. In this way Interthor makes it easy for the user of the product to improve the working environment of himself and his surrroundings.
