Many Australian workers have jobs that involve lifting, carrying, pushing and pulling throughout the day. Manual handling is one of the biggest causes of workplace injuries, but what is it really costing us?
According to Safe Work Australia Workers Compensation Report 2015-2016, manual handling injuries cost Australian businesses $28 billion annually or $75,380 per incident and 90 per cent of the claims are related to musculoskeletal disorders and injuries.
A conveyor maintenance team recently contacted us to design a series of custom lifting platforms.
The platform keeps parts at a suitable height so that on-site teams don’t need to bend over to pick up heavy items to prevent injuries, protect workers, and save employers costly compensation.
Unlike other models, which are manually lifted to the intended height by foot or hand, these units are battery-operated in order to further prevent injury and lost time.
If you have a manual handling challenge and need a bespoke solution, we can design a solution from the ground up, just like the lifting platform in this video.
