Online PR News – 17-December-2009 – – Putting Safety First with Proper Hand Truck and Moving Equipment
Many accidental deaths and permanent or serious injuries occur each year due to the mishandling and moving of large or heavy items from one place to another. These injuries (or deaths) occur both in the workplace and the home. Some of these mishaps could be avoided by the proper use of a hand truck (or similar equipment) in the moving of items.
Each situation is different, and your choice of equipment will be dictated by the following:
• Size and weight of the items you will be moving. Very heavy and large items may not go onto a transport vehicle easily. Many industrial accidents are caused by workers becoming injured (falls, sprains, strains and broken bones are examples). When appropriate mechanical assistance (such as trolley wheels and scissor lift tables); the incidence and risk of injury is decreased.
• The environment in which you will be moving the item (such as a warehouse, outdoors, terrain, and others) will be a determining factor in what equipment is suitable for you to use.
• What the item consists of is a detrimental determining factor in the equipment you should utilize. For example, if you have a gas cylinder (like oxygen); there is a special type of folding hand truck made specifically to move cylinders. Hand Trucks Reviews will give you details about where these specialty folding hand trucks can be purchased, the best type to buy and unique features a particular type or model has. Features such as built in straps (for holding the cylinder securely in place) keep dangerous and often caustic or flammable chemicals from falling over, rolling about when transported or worse-causing a serious injury.
