About this entry

The Reece Group
Above: The Reece Group

Reece undertook stakeholder consultation to reduce the musculoskeletal injury risk to workers repeatedly lifting and rolling refrigerant cylinders weighing up to 105kg. Many options, including hoists with lifting chains, were tested during the project to improve the manual handling process.

The result was the creation of a smart lifting attachment that can self-latch to the lifting head and be easily removed when the cylinder is in place.
