safe handling of buggies
Each year, the North American food processing industry loses millions of workdays due to work-related back pain and other musculoskeletal disorders. The most common causes of back pain are strained muscles or ligaments. One of the leading causes of back injury, especially in the meat processing sectors, is lifting and handling large pieces of meat and muscle.
Working with stainless steel dump buggies: Stainless steel dump buggies come in both a 400 lb. (200 liter) and 600 lb. (300 liter) design, and are widely used in meat processing plants to transport various products around the production rooms. These products then need to be removed from the dump buggy and placed into further processing machinery such as tumblers, injectors, conveyors, cutting tables, or thermoforming-type machines.
Why use a stainless-steel dump buggy tipper:
- Small and compact footprint – These stainless-steel dump buggy tippers are designed with a small footprint and can easily be integrated into tight and compact working environments.
- Safe handling – The need for manual handling is eliminated, substantially reducing the risk of injury to employees.
- Mobility options – Stainless steel dump buggy tippers can be supplied in either stationary or mobile design with different chute arrangements.
- Dump buggy protection – Many dump buggies get damaged during manual handling scenarios. Operators often try to tilt them over to access the inside, which can cause damage or stress fractures to the top rim, creating a cavity or crack that’s difficult to clean and could harbor potential pathogens.
