TITLE  
Handling cube moulds
ARTICLE
Staff at this coating plant have devised a simple carrying tool which reduces the potential risks of foot injuries during the manual handling of standard 100mm cube moulds.

As an alternative to carrying the moulds by gripping the slim upper flange, a simple clip-on and quick release tool allows the moulds to be carried alongside the body, providing improved balance. As an added benefit, staff are also able to carry two moulds at the same time, whilst still complying with manual handling regulations.
