As part of the current UK health and safety legislation guidance, the maximum weight a man should
lift at work is 25kg and a woman 16kg. This is mainly to reduce the risk of accident or injury. Some
items may be awkward to lift and even the maximum weights may be unreasonable in some
circumstances. There can also be issues with workers lifting in ways that require the carrier to make
twisting movements or lift loads to and from different heights. A variety of different risk factors need
to be assessed before asking workers to lift many types of load. Protect your work force with the use
of appropriate handling and lifting equipment.
Lifting and handling equipment is our specialist area and this forms a major part of our product
range. As well as manual handling equipment such as pallet trucks, floor cranes and stackers, we also
supply work positioners and conveyor systems. Heavy items such as metal cylinders and drums have
their own category of lifting equipment and for transferring goods from A to B, our conveyor
systems are first class. Ensuring that loads are secure whilst being moved around is essential; so, our
range of handling and lifting accessories, such as carrying grips, slings and lashings are useful for a
wide range of applications.
