Buying Industrial Trolleys to Reduce Workplace Injuries

Manual handling aids, such as hand trolleys and sack trucks, are essential tools in helping to reduce hazardous tasks that can lead to musculoskeletal injuries or MSDs.

A musculoskeletal disorder (MSD) is an injury generally occurring over time to the musculoskeletal system. This injury can also happen suddenly, resulting from very strenuous activity or a sudden shock or unexpected force – all of which are very common in the average warehouse operation when equipment is not used correctly or at all. For more information on a systems approach to MSD, go to Safe Work Australia.

The appropriate use of warehouse, order picking and commercial trolleys can reduce the risk of workplace injuries, including back injuries, sprains and sprains to muscles, and damage to ligaments, nerves, joints, and bones. Office hand trolleys, including office file trolleys and folding office trolleys, are widely used in office and commercial environments.

There are many hazardous tasks in the workplace that can result in these kinds of injuries. These tasks include repetitive work and movement, pushing or pulling heavy loads, and exposure to vibration. Electric powered trolleys are available to help reduce pushing and pulling injuries.

We Offer Huge Range of Hand Trucks and Platform Trolleys

Warehouse trolleys and hand trucks in the workplace are widely used to transport and carry heavy loads. They are used in offices and administration areas for moving archive boxes and distributing mail and office files.

Stainless steel trolley models are also used in hospitality and foodservice applications. models are also used in the hospitality industry and food service applications.

Sack trucks can are widely used for lifting and moving awkward and heavy items of furniture and vending machines. These can help eliminate the risks through manual handling.

How to use Trolleys safely

There can still be a risk of musculoskeletal injury if the manual handling device is used on steep slopes or used on stairs. In many cases, the greatest danger when operating hand trolleys is the horizontal force required to push or pull the device. Very heavy loads can be moved safely and efficiently with the most appropriate design and castor/wheel selection.

Research has demonstrated that pushing is preferable to pulling when using a trolley. When pulling equipment, your feet may be run over or your toes squashed. Furthermore, pulling when walking backward can cause other hazards, such as tripping and falling. Studies have shown that most people can safely exert a greater force when pushing than pulling.

It helps to understand the forces at play during a typical push/pull operation of mobile equipment. Typically, when moving a laden trolley, there are four phases of force used in this task, as itemised below:

What are The Four Forces of Trolley Movement and Manipulation

Starting or initial force; Rolling or sustained force; turning force; and stopping or positioning force.

The initial or starting force in trolley movement is usually the most significant effort in the task. It is always greater than the force required to sustain a continuous motion. Once the initial momentum is gained, the trolley operator usually does not need to exert much force. The only forces now are friction from physical interference from the trolley’s castors/wheels and irregularities in the floor surface. At the end of the travel route, the worker may allow the trolley to slow and come to rest. This requires minimal effort. If a sudden halt is needed, this may expose the operator to harmful forces through hazardous posturing and muscle exertions. It is essential that a risk assessment is conducted for each mechanical aid introduced into the workplace.

WorkSafe WA has a helpful guide called Manual Task Solutions-Trolleys which assists in the selection of the most appropriate equipment, including safe use of a trolley.

What should be considered when selecting a Trolley, Cart or Hand Truck

In the actual workplace environment and the workspace areas, manual handling tasks are required to be undertaken. Where possible, the workplace should be arranged to help keep any unnecessary multiple handling or transportation of goods over long distances to a minimum. Storage and ease of transport is also an important consideration when you are searching for the appropriate warehouse trolley to buy. Folding trolleys are useful where space is at a premium.

What should be considered in Industrial Trolley Design parameters

  • Work environment and any physical restrictions.
  • The distance the loaded trolley must be transported should be carefully evaluated.
  • For extended travels, a powered pedestrian tug should be explored.
  • Castor design and wheel compositions are critical for a successful, safe work outcome for intense and high-use applications.
  • Pushing loaded trolleys is always better than pulling as it requires less pressure on the lower back and allows the operator to utilise their body weight to help move the load.
  • Floor conditions should also be investigated. The construction and quality of the floor surface will impact the push/pull effort required to move the load.
  • Ramps and sloping walkways may require the use of mechanical assistance to assist in moving heavy trolleys up inclined gradients.
  • Regardless of the trolley you buy, load characteristics must be carefully assessed. The actual weight of the goods will determine the type of equipment to be chosen.
  • The load-bearing capacity of the castors should be checked to ensure both safe operation and long service life.
  • If the equipment is to be used in sterile/hygiene environments such as pharmaceutical or food manufacturing, it will be necessary to specify stainless steel construction.
  • The push handle height generally should be between 900 mm and 1000 mm. This will typically allow the workers’ hands to be positioned above waist height with elbows bent close to the body.
  • Vertical push handles will enable operators of different heights to adjust hand position to the most comfortable position.
