Using Electrical Equipment to Improve Ergonomics for Electricians
Electricians and employees of electrical supply houses encounter unique ergonomic hazards. Cabling is heavy and awkward to handle; conduit poses similar problems.
In fact, the Centers for Disease Control reported in 2006 that a full third of the injuries that caused at least one day of missed work for electricians resulted from musculoskeletal disorders caused by the physical strain of the job.
Material handling equipment that’s built specifically for electrical components can relieve the bodily stress inherent in the electrical contracting industry. A Parallel Reel Payout, for instance, limits the force required to dispense electrical cable. With its multiple, independently spinning reels, this storage and transportation device can even simplify the task of cable paralleling. Integrated fork pockets allow electrical contractors to transport reels across a job site, limiting the number of cable pulls to the absolute minimum.
Conduit Carrier Carts are similarly useful, in the warehouse or at the job site. They have a narrow profile and a sharp turning radius, allowing contractors to effortlessly move conduit through narrow aisles. Ergonomic push/pull handles further limit the strain of handling conduit, which has traditionally posed a difficult material handling challenge.
Reel Handler Attachments and Overhead Reel Lifters attach securely to lift truck forks. Prevent injuries from overexertion by transforming standard forklifts into dedicated reel-handling devices.
