Renault Range K

This 2018 Euro-6 Renault Range K tipper is our used truck of the day from MHF in Inkberrow, Worcestershire, and this example has only completed 45,000km.

The very low mileage 32-tonner is fitted with a Thompsons body and air-assisted tailgate, a Red Forge weighing system, and front, rear and offside cameras in line with FORS Gold.

Inside the day cab, the next owner will have access to air conditioning, Bluetooth, heated seats and a radio. The truck’s Euro-6 status also allows it to work within London’s ULEZ, too.

MHF has put the Renault on the market for £85,000. This price includes seven month’s MoT.

Norfolk haulier fined £20,000 after worker had foot broken by forklift truck

HSE

Norfolk haulier Foulger Transport has been fined £20,000 following an incident in which a warehouse worker had the bones in his foot broken by a moving forklift truck.

Chelmsford Magistrates’ Court heard that on the 22 March 2018, whilst working in the transport firm’s hub warehouse at its Snetterton premises, Martin Shepherd was struck by the vehicle and knocked to the ground.

Before the vehicle came to a stop, Shepherd’s foot became trapped under the wheel, breaking bones in the upper part of the foot.

An investigation by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) found that Foulger Transport, part of the Kinaxia Logistics group of companies, had failed to have in place appropriate systems to ensure that vehicles and pedestrians moved around the warehouse in a safe manner.

The HSE found that recent changes to the warehouse layout had not been considered in the company’s assessment of risk and the warehouse team were relied upon to work safely with each other without effective training and supervision.

The company pleaded guilty to breaching regulations in the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regs 1992 and was fined £20,000 and ordered to pay costs of £5,724.05.

HSE inspector Saffron Turnell said: “This incident could easily have been avoided had appropriate systems been put in place to suitably separate the fork lift trucks and pedestrians.

“Companies should be aware that HSE will not hesitate to take appropriate enforcement action against those that fall below the required standards.”
