material handling trolley and dolly

When you’re trying to decide what material handling equipment is best for getting a task done, it’s important to know the right titles to discuss your different options. When it comes to material handling, some equipment names are used interchangeably, particularly when items have similar features or are used for similar purposes.

Two of the most common repeat offenders for this misnaming confusion is dolly and trolley. Possibly because they sound the same, people often use the terms trolley and dolly interchangeably, but is there a difference between the two?

Broken skylight fall risk

A Yorkshire roofing company and its director have been handed harsh sentences after failing to prevent the death of a worker who fell twelve metres through a storm-damaged skylight.

The incident occurred in December 2016. At that time, 39-year-old Jonathan May was working as a subcontractor for Davis Industrial Roofing Limited, who are based in Wakefield.

May and two others were working on the roof of a warehouse, replacing some skylights that had been damaged during a recent hailstorm. May fell through one of these skylights and dropped 12 metres (approx. 39 feet) to his death.


If you are in possession of (or are planning on purchasing) any battery powered material handling equipment such as a forklift or an electric pallet truck, it’s important that you know how to maintain your equipment properly. Proper battery maintenance is the best way to ensure that your equipment runs smoothly and has a long life.

The importance of proper battery maintenance cannot be understated - failure to maintain your battery correctly can cause battery failure. It is the responsibility of the owner to ensure the battery is properly maintained and serviced, so it’s important you know how to do so correctly.
