Employers and employees have legal responsibilities for ensuring health and safety procedures are in place and followed. Yet people still cut corners, manhandling drums which are too heavy or containing materials hazardous to health, risking crushed fingers and feet, pulled backs or chemical spillages.
Tight head, open top, plastic L-ring, fibreboard or Mauser, drums come in many different shapes, sizes and materials. Fortunately, one thing they all have in common is any drum can be lifted safely by the right kind of drum handling forklift truck attachment.
Time can be critical when transporting goods, but when workers are put under deadline pressure, accidents happen: spillages, crushed feet and fingers, damaged backs or worse.
Some of the trickiest items to remove from a sea container or lorries are drums and barrels, but ensuring safe working practices means using the right equipment for the job - in this case, a fork lift drum handling attachment.
Forklift truck drum handling attachment safety is vital when handling heavy drums. At St Clare Engineering, we’ve been making our Grab-O-Matic drum handling fixtures for forklift trucks for more than 50 years. We use the finest quality components which we source as locally as possible to our factory in Eastleigh and assemble by hand.
