Employee strain and fatigue isn’t limited to warehouses and shipyards

It’s common knowledge that several hazards exist in the transport, warehousing and shipping industries.

Many studies have been conducted to show how dangerous it can be for companies to ignore the hazards that may lead to employee fatigue, strain and overexertion in these workplaces.

However, these risks exist in several types of workplaces, including those that many may believe to be risk-free.

Office jobs that require regular lifting expose employees to just as much potential strain as any other position.

IT workers, for example, who regularly lift and carry computer monitors, CPUs, boxes of cables, server equipment and other items, may suffer from drops in productivity when their energy begins to wane.

Similarly, kitchen workers who must transfer large cooking equipment or move these items for cleaning are exposed to these dangers, as are hospital workers who must lift and carry trays of medicine and tools.

While it may not be practical for these professionals to use heavy lifting equipment, such as forklifts or other powered industrial vehicles, Spacepac has released a long line of products designed to lower employee strain.

Spacepac Industries Supplies wide range materials handling equipment, Manual Lifters and Electric Lifters for all Lifting equipment applications.

The W-Series Light Weight Electric Lifters are ideal for indoor office lifting, and can raise a capacity of up to 80kg. All models operate smoothly on electric batteries, and are built with an aluminium mast and lockable rear castors.

The machines feature an easy-to-use pendant control and can be preset to two lifting heights, making it easier than ever for office workers to move equipment. Complete with a built-in battery and charger, the lift recharges fast and won’t leave offices suffering from any downtime.

Just because employees aren’t surrounded by moving parts and heavy machinery doesn’t mean they aren’t exposed to serious health hazards. With the right equipment though, employers can ensure their office workers remain healthy and productive.
