Presto Lifts Offers Many Ergonomic Solutions for Loading and Unloading Large Containers.

The effects of manual material handling represent the biggest single contributor to worker injury in the United States and the application of good ergonomic programs can reduce those incidences.

Choosing and operating the proper piece of equipment for the job at hand is one key to reducing injuries in the works place.

Unnecessary and improper worker activities result in bad ergonomics, which can lead to injury. Lifting, Stretching, Reaching, Bending, Stooping and Walking are the motions that need to be addressed in workplace activities.

In the first of a series highlighting Presto Lifts solutions to common Ergonomic problems is a gallery dealing with basket loading and unloading.

Large containers have become a way of life in many manufacturing environments. We’ve become accustomed to seeing various Wire Baskets, Plastic Bulk Boxes and Custom Carts at workstations on a daily basis. These large storage options create many ergonomic problems for the workforce. All of the 6 motions that create bad ergonomics come into play when improperly loading and unloading large containers. Presto Lifts offers many solutions when it comes to the ergonomic problems encountered when loading or unloading these large storage containers.
