Material Handling Tug Devices: A Proactive Approach to Plant Safety that Improves Productivity and ProfitabilityApril 18, 2012 1:17 pm | by Power Pusher | White Papers
In recent years, improving worker safety has become an important focus in most industries, as job-related injuries can result in employee absenteeism, reduced productivity and increased costs. Many material handling applications pose serious health and safety risks, requiring workers to move heavy loads either through sheer manpower or by using equipment that is unstable, difficult to control or ergonomically deficient. To overcome these safety challenges, the development of battery-operated tug devices allows employees to single-handedly move materials weighing thousands of pounds without exposing them to unnecessary risk of injury. Battery- operated tugs enhance safety by preventing operator strain and reducing potential collisions on busy plant floors, resulting in improved productivity and efficiency— ultimately impacting a company’s overall profitability.
