Warehouses & Distribution

Introduction

New Horizons facility in North Ryde imports various wellbeing goods. It’s of Australia’s most trusted non-profit companies supporting and employing thousands of vulnerable and disadvantaged people.

Challenge

Their NSW warehouse has constant foot traffic, pallet jacks & forklifts movement that spreads all sorts of debris like leaves, rocks, cardboard & screws on the warehouse floor. The company saw this as a potential trip hazards for its employees and looked to address it using state of the art equipment.

Prior to ASC’s consultation, the company recognised the need to change its practices as create a dust free environment for its employees to work in.

Using push brooms simply creates too much airborne dust and was no longer an option. They also had a large elevated dock that needed to be cleaned.

Solution

After carefully assessing New Horizons safety requirements, ASC’s NSW Area Manager Scott Campbell recommended and demonstrated the entry level ASC MEP push sweeper with dust control.

Team members were amazed at how ASC’s MEP cleaned the warehouse. How quickly it cleaned and also how simple it was to use.

They wanted the ASC MEP as soon as they could get there hands on one. As these are stock items this was delivered in no time.

On delivery day they were very pleased, everyone had a sweep!

A fantastic result for the company and all their staff. A small investment for such a massive improvement.
