Automation for safety

Automated solutions can streamline manual handling operations and minimise repetitive high risk tasks, according to materials handling specialist Kardex. It points out that a recent Health & Safety Executive report showed that some 40 per cent of work-related injuries were caused by manual handling accidents.

Kardex UK sales manager Clive Williams said: “Solutions exist today, that enable warehouse managers to partially automate the storage and retrieval of components, eliminating dangerous repeated bending and stretching.”
