Advanced spill pallet and workstation systems are being introduced by Enware Safe-Equip to help combat slip, fall and trip accidents that now account for more than 25,000 new workers compensation cases a year in Australia.
The tough but lightweight Enpac polyethylene equipment complies with some of the world’s most demanding packaging and environmental standards for handling, storage and transporting of hazardous materials.
The two and four-drum spill pallets – plus the two, four, six and eight drum workstations — are part of a broader spill containment, environmental and worker protection products from Safe-Equip. Included in the ranges are:
- Two-drum forkliftable Poly-Spillpallet™ 2000 with a 900kg load bearing capacity UDL and a sump capacity of 220.4 litres with drain hole and plug. With non-skid removable grates, it weighs only 28.35kg.
- Four-drum Poly Slim-Line 6000™, forkliftable from all four sides and with a load bearing capacity of 2700kg UDL in four 205-litre drums. This low (30cm) profile product features a raised edge on back and sides to help secure barrels.
- Space-saving, four-drum Poly-Spillpallet™ 3000, which permits drum storage near walls and between columns and other obstacles. This low (30cm) profile pallet with raised edge has a load bearing capacity of 1350kg and 250.8 litre sump.
- Drums Workstations™ in 2, 4, 6 and 8-drum capacities are designed to integrate into factory and workshop floors, optimizing space, safety and efficiency. Constructed in tough, one-piece polyethylene, they are easy to load with low-profile design, optional ramp and large sump capacity. They are ideal as a dispensing station or work centre.
- Multiple Drums Workstations can be combined by a Link-lock™ feature, combining the workstations into a tough, stable surface that won’t rust or corrode. Workstations feature rolled edge design to help resist crack and warpage and have strong, structural foam, grates that remove for easy cleaning.
Enware Australian Pty Ltd Managing Director Mr Paul Degnan says that not only do the pallets and workstations limit worker exposure to accidents, but also they reduce materials costs by reclaiming spillage and reduce disposal costs.
“The tough but light range is intelligently designed to enable workers to boost productivity by moving more product more quickly,” he says.
” A major benefit also, in these days of high workers compensation claims, is potentially being able to reduce premiums by demonstrating first class facilities plans and materials handling products.”
The latest National Occupational Health and Safety Commission (NOHSC) figures show that Australian industries particularly prone to workers compensation claims include Transport and storage; Agriculture, forestry and fishing; Manufacturing; Construction; and Mining.
The same NOHSC figures show Australian industry now has well over 25,000* new workers compensation cases a year where falls, slips and trips result in death, permanent disability or a temporary disability resulting in an absence from work of more than a week.
Sprains or strains of joints or adjacent muscles now account for more than 50 per cent of new workers compensation cases recorded by the NOHSC.
Mr Degnan says the Enpac range (firstname.lastname@example.org) is unique in Australasia because it brings together in one system a complete range of solutions to materials handling issues commonly arising across a broad spectrum of industrial applications.
