TITLE
Oil drum "Safelift"
ARTICLE
Description

When 205 litre oil drums are delivered on a pallet to Shoreham Wharf, they have to be moved into the oil store and on to the spill trays. These drums weigh over 200kgs and require two to three people to move. The manual handling issues were identified as a hazard. An A-Frame lifting beam and barrel clamp to lift the oil drums into oil store was
designed and installed.

Benefits

Significant reduction of manual handling risks.
