Well established local newspaper, Latrobe Valley Express, recently purchased a Palift pallet leveller from Safetech to improve safety for staff in their printing works.
Latrobe Valley Express employ a large number of women in their Morwell printing works to insert flyers and catalogues into the newspapers most days of the week, with tens of thousands being inserted every seven days.
The problem with this is that 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.
The company chose to equip their pallet stations with Safetech Palift pallet levellers as they eliminated bending and walking around the pallet. The installation of Palift pallet levellers has resulted in huge productivity gains and a very happy workforce for the company.
