Safety is always a hot topic, especially on the loading dock. Most of us try to take measures to keep our employees happy and healthy. But, even with precautions, injuries at work are costing U.S. companies a lot of money.
One major cause of injury is the forklift. Operators can hurt their backs, knees and even ankles getting on and off of them. There is a way, however, to help reduce the risk of those injuries, its called automation. By allowing a stretch wrapper to automatically attach film at the beginning of a wrap cycle and cut film at the end, operators can stay on their forklifts, reducing the opportunity to get hurt.
