Palift Eases Back Strain for Latrobe Valley Express

March 31, 2017

Case Study

Industry:  Newspaper
Product:  Palift

Problem

At their printing works in Morwell, a large number of women are employed to insert Flyers, catalogues etc into the papers most days of the week. Tens of thousands of these flyers are inserted every week.

The women have to unload the flyers from pallets which involves extensive bending, stretching and moving around the pallet. This risks back and upper limb injury.

Solution

The Safetech Palift was chosen as it eliminated bending and walking around the pallet. Over many years now LV Express has continued to purchase multiple units at a time until most pallet stations are assisted by a Palift.

Benefits

By purchasing Palift pallet levellers the staff  have eliminated the need to bend and walk around the pallet. This has resulted in huge productivity gains and a very happy workforce for the company.

Alternatives

The company could have purchased more expensive hydraulic scissor lift tables but were more than happy with the user friendly spring loaded units.
Alternative spring loaded units were not as durable or easy to use.
