It’s time to look at manual handling in healthcare
In busy healthcare settings, moving heavy-wheeled loads such as roll cages, linen cages, medical equipment, and catering trolleys takes its toll on staff, and increases the risk of accidents.
With heavy loads often moved by hand, healthcare and porter staff are at risk of injuries, strains and musculoskeletal disorders.
Combined with the weight of loads, staff often move loads in tight, congested corridors and up slopes, adding to safety risks.
Improve staff safety and boost productivity
Enabling a single operator to safely move heavy loads, electric tugs help healthcare managers improve workplace safety and eliminate manual handling.
Offering a safer alternative to manual handling, electric tugs deliver the controlled movement of loads throughout healthcare facilities to reduce the risk of injuries and boost productivity.
