Rotacaster Wheel Limited has been named as a finalist in the 2010 National Safety Council of Australia (NSCA) / GIO Workers Compensation National Safety Awards of Excellence for their Rotatruck hand trolley.
Named the “Rotatruck Self Supporting Hand Trolley”, the hand trolley has been nominated in the Best Solution of an OHS&E Specific Workplace Risk category, which is judged on how innovative a solution is in addressing a safety challenge or workplace risk.
Set to be announced on October 7th 2010 in Sydney, the NSCA Safety Awards of Excellence received a record number of nominations from all over Australia and recognise innovative safety solutions, the implementation of best practice OHS&E management systems, or the best communication of a safety message.
Rotacaster's nomination follows the company's success at the NSW Work Cover Safe Work Awards in 2009 where the Rotatruck Self Supporting Hand Truck was named as the ‘best solution to an identified workplace health and safety issue’, and was nominated as a finalist at the 2010 National Safe Work Awards in the same category.
Rotacaster designs, manufactures and distributes a range of ergonomic materials handling equipment including hand trolleys, stair climbing hand trucks, dollies and load skates as well as a patented multi-directional wheel that allows 360 degree movement with the stability of a fixed mounting.
