Hand Truck Safety Issue Resolved by Lift’n Buddy

(OPENPRESS) September 21, 2011 — Workforce health and safety is paramount and the data clearly shows that repetitive lifting, lowering, and moving injuries costs North American businesses millions of dollars each year. Lift’n Buddy automates those tasks, significantly reducing the potential for injuries and costly downtime.

According to Aaron Lamb, inventor of Lift’n Buddy, “Employees repeatedly move products from a delivery truck to a hand truck or stack. Product to be moved can be stacked to shoulder height and may need to be lowered to ground level. These lifting tasks pose an increased risk of pain and injury and should be considered hazardous unless appropriate solutions are implemented.” A video is available of Lift’nBuddy.

Hand trucks, two-wheelers, and lifting devices, have changed little in the past hundred years. Lift’n Buddy (www.liftnbuddy.com) is the cost-effective revolutionary mobile lifting device that combines the best of a standard two-wheeler’s durability and functionality, with automatic lifting and lowering capabilities. Heavy-duty hand trucks of the past, caused more than one-third of all material handling injuries, whether used in deliveries, moving product in a warehouse, or on the manufacturing plant floor.

Ergologistics manufactures innovative products for the health and welfare of material handling workers. Lift’n Buddy is designed and distributed by Ergologistics, LLC; manufactured in Fargo, North Dakota, the company is a proud member of MHIA (Material Handling Industry of America) as well as the National Safety Council.

The Lift’n Buddy has been designed with proper ergonomics and safety in mind for any person and any moving and lifting job. These mobile lifting devices, fabricated of durable, lightweight, extruded aluminum, help companies avoid the financial exposure of employee injury, litigation, and worker’s compensation claims.

Lift’n Buddy is ergonomically safe and environmentally friendly since the electric hand trucks require no oil, gas, hydraulic fluid, or maintenance of any kind. Completely electric and geared for life, even the battery is 100 % recyclable.
