Anytime you’re lifting and moving materials, there's a potential for back injury. According to reports from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), almost a third of all workplace injuries include strains and sprains to the lower back, shoulders, neck, and arms.
Luckily, these injuries are preventable with training and the use of simple aids like hand trucks, carts, dollies and ramps. Good material handling practices, combined with these tools, can save time, make tasks easier, and reduce injuries.
Ramps provide value anywhere carts and dollies may need to be used.
Ramps help you quickly and easily load and unload cargo with standard hand trucks, or brake trucks into your box truck, trailer, U-Haul, cube van, or freight loading dock.
