Improving Safety with a Powered Dumper Mover

As automation becomes increasingly used for difficult physical tasks in the workplace, moving heavy dumpsters has remained largely a manual job. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that overexertion and bodily reaction are the leading causes of workplace injuries. Here’s a look at how your operations could be improved significantly with the use of a powered dumpster mover.

Disadvantages of Moving Dumpsters Manually

1. Reduced productivity

Moving heavy dumpsters is already difficult in and of itself, usually requiring at least two employees. Add to that the fact that workers will generally move more slowly in an effort to limit the risk of injury. On the other hand, a single employee using a dumpster mover can complete the task quickly and safely, leaving more time for productive activities.

2.Navigating slopes

Transporting dumpsters up and down slopes requires even more force to control the movement. In addition to injuring workers, a runaway dumpster may cause extensive damage to any objects in its path.

3. Hidden cost of injuries

Financial losses from injuries aren’t limited to workers compensation claims. The negative effect of injuries can be seen in factors such as lost productivity, increased insurance premiums, and the cost of hiring and training replacement staff. Perhaps the most serious impact is reduced worker morale, which is difficult to quantify but has major short- and long-term effects.
