Financing ergonomic lifting equipment

Rockwool, world leading supplier of stone wool products and insulation systems, have financed several ergonomic lift systems from TAWI. At their establishment in Belgium, vacuum lifters and lifting trolleys are used on a daily basis to raise and haul various merchandise, and the lifters have become an essential part of the workflow. By financing TAWI lifting equipment, Rockwool wanted to make the work simpler and free from harm for the employees.

Proficiently lifting 16,000 lbs of boxes all day, every day

Lifting boxes weighing between 45-65 lbs and stacking them on pallets was done by hand in previous years. One pallet can contain up to 72 boxes, each box weighing approximately 55 lbs, totaling a weight of around 4,000 lbs per pallet. One employee will fill at least four pallets per shift, lifting a total of 16,000 lbs. With the TAWI lifters now installed, these weights can now be controlled efficiently, and without putting any tension on the workers bodies.

Improved employee Welfare and contentment

Since financing in ergonomic lifting equipment, the staff has used the lifters for every shift, every day. Overall, it has been a positive experience for everyone, especially since they can now maintain proficient work speed all day, without feeling fatigued. Danny Flass, production site supervisor, is sure that the investment in TAWI lifters has paid off quickly due to the evident health benefits for the employees and overall contentment.
