Sourcing the Optimal Industrial Lifting Solution

Identifying the best industrial lifting solution for your business is incredibly important, not only for your daily work proceedings to run efficiently and correctly, but also to ensure the ultimate safety of your employees. Materials handling and lifting is often the most common cause of workplace injury and is typically due to improper equipment and/or training. Accidents involving manual lifting and handling are more likely to occur in industrial environments, so the proper lifting equipment and resources must be available. According to a report conducted in the UK in 2021/2022, there were over 139,000 new cases of work-related musculoskeletal disorders caused by improper manual handling alone – accounting for 7.3 million working days lost in total.

Not only does having the correct equipment on hand in industrial environments help to reduce the risk of accident and injury, but it also helps to significantly improve production time and overall worker productivity. Finding the right industrial lifting equipment to suit you and your specific business requirements can often be challenging, which is why the team here at Penny are here to help.
