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 such as musculoskeletal disorders, and lowering productivity.
Eliminate manual handling and maximise productivity
Electric tugs 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 tugs prevent overexertion and fatigue, boost productivity and maximise workplace safety.
The benefits of electric tugs in meat processing
Whether it’s eliminating manual handling in meat packing processes or reducing the risk of injury in abattoirs, electric tugs help the meat processing industry improve workplace safety and productivity.
Safe, controlled movements
Electric tugs are optimised to maximise traction, making them ideal for use in wet environments like meat processing.
With a single operator able to move the heaviest of loads, electric tugs allow staff to focus on more productive activities.
Keeping people safe
Reducing the risk of injury from manual handling and ensuring the safe movement of loads, electric tugs maximise workplace safety.
