Roll Cage Safety [Infographic]
Roll cages are staples in sectors such as Retail, Logistics, Food and Beverage and many more. Typically, they are a cage mounted on four castor wheels and are operated by single pedestrians with their hands.
Not only is this bad for your posture (which can cause long term Musculoskeletal Disorders), they are often heavy and moved on slopes. The combination of factors can result in a range of injuries.
Types of accidents
- Trapping hands and feet
- Injury as a result of pulling/pushing up slopes
- Roll cages falling off lorries during loading/unloading
Companies who use roll cages have continuously found a third of their accidents are roll cage related
3 steps to reduce the risk of roll cage incidents
- Risk assessment and evaluation of tasks
- Looking for alternative methods to reduce or eliminate the amount of manual handling required
- Utilising a MasterMover electric tug to take the strain
