Material handling equipment for all your needs
When it comes to manual handling, the Operations Regulations are very clear and state that if anything weights over 25kg then it should not be lifted manually. All too often, when handling heavier items, employees believe that they can lift these heavier objects manually, and while they might physically be able to, they are far more likely to cause injury either to themselves or those around them through this action. It is for this reason that it is essential to keep these risks to a minimum by investing in the most appropriate manual handling equipment for your requirements and those of your company.
There is a wide range of products on the market, and they fall into a number of different categories. They can be operated manually, controlled electrically, and can even be pneumatic or hydraulic powered depending on your requirements. If you are not entirely sure what you are looking for, then get in touch with us to discuss your requirements and let us help you to find the most appropriate materials handling equipment for your business.
