Midland Pallet Trucks, a leading manufacturer of high-quality manual handling equipment, today emphasises its unwavering commitment to promoting safety in the workplace. Numerous studies have revealed that manual handling activities account for a significant portion of workplace injuries, a number that Midland Pallet Trucks believes should be addressed.

“At Midland Pallet Trucks, safety is paramount,” says Phil Chesworth, Managing Director of Midland Pallet Trucks. “We believe that every worker deserves to return home safe and healthy at the end of the day. That’s why we not only design our pallet trucks with ergonomics in mind, but also actively share best practices for safe manual handling techniques.”

Many manual handling-related injuries stem from simple, yet preventable mistakes. Common missteps include attempting to lift objects that are too heavy, neglecting teamwork for cumbersome loads, and rushing while manoeuvring pallets. To combat these issues, Midland emphasises the importance of proper technique. Planning the lift by assessing weight, size, and ensuring a clear path is crucial.

Midland Pallet Trucks also recognise the role that manual handling equipment itself plays in the safety of warehouse staff. This is why all their equipment has been designed with employee safety in mind. Features like comfortable handles, smooth-rolling wheels, and precise foot breaks all contribute to a safer working environment.

Beyond providing top-quality equipment, Midland offers a wealth of resources to further support businesses and individuals in prioritising workplace safety. All equipment comes with an in-depth user manual and there are plenty of guides on the Midland Pallet Trucks website to ensure every customer uses the equipment properly.

From high-quality hand pallet trucks and electric trucks, to manual stacker trucks, Midland Pallet Trucks have positioned their equipment as the go-to choice for businesses in the logistics industry thanks to their focus on staff health and safety.
