Scales and Weighing Equipment for Government Bodies
The public sector is under increasing pressure in the wake of the global financial crisis and resulting budget cuts. Just like the commercial world, government bodies and the public sector are forced to be as efficient as possible in order to make funding stretch as far as possible.
Weighing scales and systems from Avery Weigh-Tronix can help provide efficiencies in all public sector services, whether measuring waste in civic amenity sites, or preparing overseas shipments for defence purposes.
As with all government spending, the defence budget is under increasing pressure and scrutiny. Just like the commercial world, public sector operations are forced to be as efficient as possible in order to make funding stretch as far as possible.
Weighing scales and systems from Avery Weigh-Tronix can help in the defence sector in a number of ways. For example, by ensuring that defence vehicles are within specification for operational deployment and transportational needs and for stock management purposes by weighing supplies to minimise the risk of having insufficient or excess inventory.View applicable products

The normal route of identifying any vehicle’s weight is typically from the manufacturer’s handbook. As most emergency vehicles are specially built by a vehicle converter, adding seats, cabinetry, and many other items during the conversion process, this dramatically affects final vehicle gross weight as well as axle load. This makes the manufacturer’s figures given against the base vehicle, of limited use.
A common method to subsequently identify vehicle weight is by use of a local Public Weighing Station; this may not be situated in a convenient location so can be a very time consuming option, especially when considering additional queuing time.
Vehicle weight is particularly important to ensure that vehicle axle weights are not exceeded, which can result in vehicles becoming dangerous to drive and costly to run.
Portable Axle Weighing Pads from Avery Weigh-Tronix provide an ideal solution, allowing quick spot checks by total weight, axle weight or by individual wheel if needed.View applicable products
Patient weighing and laboratory analysis are obviously crucial places for scales in the healthcare industry and hospitals and Avery Weigh-Tronix can provide scales for them. However, there are many other places around the hospital where our scales can also improve efficiency and reduce waste.
Medical waste disposal requires cradle to grave traceability. Records must be detailed and accurate along every step, from collection to incineration. Weighbridges, axle weighers and floor scales, paired with sophisticated weighing indicators, can help provide accurate data and traceability for medical waste for complete regulatory compliance.View applicable products
Local authorities in the UK have a wide scope, providing a wide range of services to people in their areas. Health and social care, planning and housing, management of education and leisure facilities and waste collection, management and disposal part of the remit of a local authority.
Local authorities are accountable to the public as they are to the government itself. As a result, local authorities must have access to accurate data which can be used to report on various issues, including how public money is spent and waste reduction initiatives.
At the heart of every local authority strategy, is a drive for sustainability and provision of facilities and services for “zero waste”. By working hand in hand with local authorities and waste management providers, we’re able to track individual waste streams, increase recycling rates and identify cost-effective and responsible alternatives for waste.
Weighbridges and floor scales, paired with sophisticated weighing indicators, can help provide accurate data and traceability for complete regulatory compliance in all waste management facilities including energy from waste, materials recycling facilities and civic amenity sites.
From the use of our specialist waste management software TraceWaste, we can help local authorities to measure the effectiveness and quantify the financial impact of waste reduction initiatives in most public sector operations, while also complying with industry legislation such as the EU Waste Directive, WEEE Regulations and The Landfill Directive.View applicable products
