Mecmesin manual handling kit helps ensure employee health and safety

Mecmesin : 07 November, 2007  (New Product)
A manual handling kit has been developed by Mecmesin to test a variety of job tasks in the workplace to maintain a safe environment for employees.
One of the most important issues facing employers today is the continued health and safety of their employees. Inefficient processes and poor task delegation can lead to injury to staff and damage to equipment, resulting in costly repairs, reduced production levels and compensation claims.

Mecmesin manual handling kits serve to minimise the possibility of these types of incidents from occurring by enabling businesses to test tasks within the workplace, which require personnel to exert physical force to push, pull, lift, carry or use repetitive rotational movements day-to-day.

The kit incorporates a force gauge, capable of measuring small and extensive forces, plus appropriate accessories to accurately assess each task application by mimicking the person’s actions. The kit is designed to not only measure the force used in physically demanding tasks, but also the capacity of personnel to perform the task in question.

The kit benefits employers by providing them with better knowledge of the requirements of the application, the ability to effectively match the task to an individual’s capabilities and include new processes to enable existing personnel to work unhindered by previous safety risks.

Using the manual handling kit will ensure these tasks remain within the designated guidelines and regulations set by governing bodies and help evaluate where the main risk of injuries to personnel reside.
