Dock Lift

Do my 120v and 240v appliances work with 3 phase power?

I work in a warehouse where the power is 3 phase. Am I going to have trouble with my 120v and 240v appliances? Will it damage them or is it even compatible? I've been reading that I need a master distribution board (breaker panel) to split it to 240v; but won't this make it so that I don't save on electricity? If you could help me I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks

120 Volt and 240 Volt single phase service can be derived from a three phase service. Your warehouse most likely has 120 Volt single phase convenience outlets all over the place. Use them for your appliances. (Radios, drills, vacuum cleaners, floor polishers, etc.) A normal-looking outlet will be wired to single phase 120 Volt power. No electrician would do otherwise.

Chances are that the only loads actually using three phase service in a warehouse are overhead lighting, elevators, and loading dock lifts.
