Personal protective equipment varies from task to task, but forklift battery PPE should remain standardized across facilities. That’s because the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) provides clear rules on the protective equipment that anyone working in the battery room should wear.
A self-leveling spring table with a rotating surface makes an ideal pallet-handling workstation. The table is designed to maintain a custom safe working height — even when the level of the work rises or falls, as it must when the operator is building or unpacking a pallet. This constant adjustment to a comfortable elevation protects staff from risky motions like bending, stretching, and adopting awkward postures.
A tote dumper may not be the first piece of material handling equipment you think of for a facility that must maintain strict sanitation protocols — whether that’s food processing, pharmaceuticals, or the grain supply chain itself.
Transfer station design isn’t just about controlling operational costs. The placement, layout, and infrastructure in a transfer station all contribute strongly to the safety of the people who work there. In other words, the original design of the facility is integral to the success of any health and safety program, even one enacted years down the line.
