About this entry
For the St Vincent de Paul Society Victoria, transporting of donated goods carried a significant risk of musculoskeletal disorder from the hazardous manual handling. A roll cage solution to hold and transport bales of donations was developed. These ensure bales are no longer overfilled, are easily manoeuvrable, stackable, and compatible with forklift transport at the warehouse. Importantly, they have eliminated associated musculoskeletal injuries from the hazardous manual handling.
