Manual handling risks within meat processing
From the movement of carcasses within chiller rooms to the transportation of cut joints to packing, operations within meat processing environments can be both repetitive and strenuous for staff – particularly where heavy loads are moved manually.
Manual handling is often relied on within abattoirs and packing facilities, leading to injuries, strains, and lowering productivity.
Eliminate manual handling and maximize productivity
Electric tuggers enable a single operator to safely move loads such as processed meat, food eurobins and carcasses along overhead rails.
Eliminating the need for manual handling, electric tuggers prevent overexertion and fatigue, boost productivity and maximize workplace safety.
