Filling and emptying boxes
- of objects into/out of boxes, large plastic containers, crates etc.
From an ergonomic point of view it is a claim that correct lifting methods can be used during working, no matter whether the work concerns heavy or light object. However, lifting the container, so that the top edge is in a good working height, is not enough. It is necessary that the angles allow the user to reach the objects without bending his back.
It is important that
- the back can work in its "intermediate position"
- the distance to the objects is as short as possible considering back and shoulders.
The choice could be a Logitilt or a Logiflex with side-tilting
forks. These products make it possible to tilt a container or box
into a good working position of the back by changing the tilt
degree when filling/emptying the box. In this way the user gets the
least possible distance to the objects and the least possible
strain of his back and shoulders.
With a Logitilt a load can be tilted up to 90º. The working height can be varied from 750 to 950 mm, which makes both standing and sitting work possible. The handle can be turned to the side, giving free access to the box opening.
A Logiflex with Rotator can be set to turn up to 180º to each side.
