Permatt: UKMHA Accreditation

Being a member of UKMHA, Permatt Fork Lift Trucks adheres to a comprehensive, and stringent Code of Practice, ensuring their competence in offering expert advice, specifying suitable equipment, providing prompt and robust service support, employing fully trained engineers, utilizing high-quality parts, and holding over £5m in insurance coverage.

Underpinning the Code of Practice is the UKMHA’s rigorous Audit, developed specifically for the material handling industry. It is unlike many accreditations that use an on-line questionnaire.  Instead, a Compliance Manager from the UKMHA undertakes a physical on-site audit, to inspect more than 100 criteria, across areas of business operations including safety, health, environmental and risk management.

Lee Medway, UKMHA Compliance Manager, conducted the audit at Permatt Fork Lift Trucks, he explains why the process is so important:

“The compliance audit is designed to give customers real peace of mind.  As an UKMHA audit accredited company, they know that Permatt Fork Lift Trucks (Hebburn depot) has measured up to an industry-led health check and operates to a nationally agreed standard, clearly differentiating it from unaccredited businesses and removes a potentially weak link of traceability and accountability in their supply chain.”

Permatt Fork Lift Trucks, through this accreditation, proves their superiority in the field, offering customers a trusted, high-standard choice for their material handling needs. Why settle for less when such accredited expertise is available?
