Industry Sector Focus: Ergonomics

The category of Woodworking Industry encompasses a very specific range of companies, having an endless variety of components, raw materials, or finished products, which require manipulation during processing, or palletizing as finished products. These products may be quite heavy, moved frequently, or simply awkward dimensionally, all requiring some form of support be it from carts, lift tables, or other types of lifting equipment. Given the increased focus on improved working environments throughout todays workplace areas, how materials are handled and manipulated have come under increased scrutiny, with an ever increasing focus on creating a more ergonomic & worker friendly environment. What happens to the materials moving through this process, and how it impacts workers, is what we at TnT Handling are focused on. We move materials, be it in boxes, raw materials state into routers, finished goods off the production line etc??? via both fixed and portable lifting devices. Aided by both standard and custom designed offerings in our carts, lifters, cranes, processing and machinery for packaging & palletizing, we assist in the elimination of lifting related injuries and significantly reduce the exposure to unsafe handling while creating a more worker friendly environment for all.
