Boosting efficiency with a Spacepac tow motor

Organisations across Australia are looking at ways to improve their productivity, while maintaining environmental standards and worker safety.

The Australian Productivity Commission claimed earlier this year that the country has performed poorly over the last decade, despite the economy doing well overall.

Peter Harris, chairman of the organisation, said a lack of productivity will begin to affect national income and the general wellbeing of Australians if not tackled effectively.

“Productivity growth requires that impediments to innovation, technological improvement and reorganisation of production are continuously reviewed and removed,” he stated.

“This is how, over the medium term, we best cope with structural changes such as rapid exchange rate movements, our ageing population and potential global economic shocks.”

Minimise worker exertion with battery-powered movers

Employees at health organisations all around the world exert an incredible amount of energy on the job, whether it’s moving beds, trolleys or even patients themselves.

However, this exertion can put severe pressure on workers’ lower backs, which could lead to injuries or pain.

If your hospital currently relies on the manual lift and movement of heavy resources or patients, then consider a Spacepac battery-powered mover.
