Waste Management Hazards

When working in the waste management sector, workers are tasked with moving heavy loads frequently, which can be detrimental to their health in the long and short term.

Despite the obvious risk of injury, safe manual handling seems to be unachievable. Moreover, it can often take two or more people to move a heavy load, not creating a lean working environment.

Thankfully at MasterMover, we provide the perfect solution.

Key Waste Management Safety stats

5,000 injured each year
workers in the waste sector suffer from work-related ill health each year
42% could have been avoided
of the 1,598 non-fatal injuries were injured while handling, lifting or carrying

Types of Accidents

  • Trapping hands and feet
  • Injury as a result of pulling/pushing up slopes
  • Long term musculoskeletal damage

3 ways a MasterMover electric tug can improve safety and efficiency

  1. Automatic braking system so no danger when going up or down slopes
  2. Helps reduce musculoskeletal injuries as the machine takes the weight of the bin, not the operators back
  3. The machine allows an operator to move more than one bin at one time*

*Depending on machine, weight of bin and connection points
