Lift systems reduce staff injuries

Staff working in the warehousing and logistics sector can now reduce the threat of manual handling injuries in the workplace following the launch of Lift Mates by Grip-It UK. The lightweight and simple-to-use Solo Lift and Dual Lift products mean staff repeatedly lifting and carrying boxes and packages can not only work more safely, but reduce the threat of injuries associated with repetitive handling and lifting.

Solo Lift incorporates a trigger grip system that allows boxes to be lifted and carried easily and effectively using only one hand and minimal grip pressure. It removes the need for the strain of “under box” lifting and reduces the likelihood of a slip, trip or fall brought about by the obscured view of carrying a box.

For people dealing with bulkier packaging, the two-handed Dual Lift system provides two highly effective, detachable, temporary handles that not only provide superb grip, but allow the user to lift keeping their shoulders level and back straight, reducing the likelihood of common manual handling and musculoskeletal injuries.
