A sack truck is an invaluable piece of manual handling equipment to any business. Can your business really afford to become less efficient due to work-related injuries? Can your employees benefit from using a sack barrow for lifting? Read our guide to choosing the right sack truck for your workplace.
According to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), 4.5 million working days were lost in the UK due to workplace injuries in 2015/16* - with the main culprit being incorrect lifting techniques. This highlights the importance of ensuring your workforce are equipped with the correct lifting apparatus, including a well-made sack truck, to prevent easily-avoidable back strains - a common manual handling injury. This not only protects your employees health, but it also allows your business to run more efficiently with less sick days and long-term employee absence.
