Automatic Tipping Skips

This mandatory standard must be applied at all construction locations.

  • Tipping skips that rely solely on a chain as the method of securing them into position on the forks of telehandlers & forklift trucks are not permitted to be used on Morgan Sindall projects or work places.
  • Only automatic tipping skips that have a positive connection that secures the tipping skip into position behind the heel of both forks are permitted to be used.
  • Auto tipping skips must be subject to regular inspection and maintenance in accordance with the manufacturer’s guidance to ensure that the auto lock mechanism is functioning correctly.
  • Operators must ensure locking mechanism has correctly operated prior to moving/lifting.
