In many jobs, heavy lifting is a routine part of the daily work. But how much does a worker actually lift each day? The Cray X can compensate up to 25 kg for each lifting movement. See the impressive effect it has for workers day in, day out, here.
Germany’s Manual Handling of Loads at Work Ordinance (Lastenhandhabungsverordnung) applies to all employees who are required to carry, lift or move heavy loads by muscle power alone in their work. Calculate how you can provide relief for your employees by using the Cray X during lifting.
Germany’s Manual Handling of Loads at Work Ordinance (Lastenhandhabungsverordnung) applies to all employees who are required to carry, lift or move heavy loads by muscle power alone in their work. Although the ordinance does not stipulate any specific limits, such limits can be calculated using the so-called “Key Indicator Method”. It is the employer’s responsibility to ensure that the regulations of the Load Handling Ordinance are observed and that protective measures are taken, if necessary.
Number One Health Issue
The figures are even more dramatic against the backdrop of an aging population and a noticeable shortage of skilled workers in production. In some cases, aids such as forklifts or cranes could improve workers’ situation. However, often these static aids prove to be too inflexible in practice or the acquisition costs are comparatively high.
Also, our workplaces are far from having all work done by robots. An important early lesson is that not all kinds of human work can be economically replaced by full automation or robotic systems. This is where exoskeletons can help – whether it’s lifting heavy loads in logistics, the care sector or on the production line.
