Risk Managers Find WasteCaddy A Must Have For Safety

WasteCaddy has a significant impact on reducing injuries in the trash room.

Little Falls, MN Oct 21, 2016 — Insurance statistics show that the most dangerous area in a multi-family property is the trash room. The most common injuries are related to maintenance technicians moving heavy dumpsters from the trash/compactor room to the curb or pickup site.

An empty dumpster can weigh between 500 and 1,000 pounds. When it’s full of trash, especially compacted trash, it can weight 2,000 to 2,500 pounds. Moving these heavy, unwieldy dumpsters through narrow doorways, across rough, uneven pavement is dangerous. Navigating dumpsters up inclines, through snow and slush or across wet surfaces dramatically increases the risk of some of the most common injuries such as, back and shoulder strains, slips and falls, pinched fingers and crushed toes, lacerations and broken bones. Even under the most ideal weather conditions injuries still occur.

The WasteCaddy, a battery powered motorized dumpster mover, was purpose-built to allow a single person to safely move dumpsters and is a “best practice” now in place by several national and regional property management companies. Insurance companies/brokers like Marsh McLennan, The Hartford and ICW have recommended the WasteCaddy to their clients because they believe it can reduce claims which ultimately helps to keep premiums low. The average workers comp claim from an injury in the trash room at a multi-family property is more than $41,000. At a cost of $5,000 for a WasteCaddy, insurance companies see an ROI of better than 8-to-1.

Maintenance employees of any height, age, gender and strength are now able to move these heavy dumpsters while reducing risk of injury. The Risk Management groups within property management companies report that use of the WasteCaddy lowers workers comp claim frequency, and consequently reduces insurance premiums.

The WasteCaddy has proven to be a safe and reliable way to move dumpsters. Elbow grease, trucks, tractors, pallet-jacks, and ATVs are only workarounds that just don’t get the job done as safely. Call DJ Products at 800-686-2651 or visit djproducts.com for more information.
