In any typical working day, items are moved around on a continual basis, and on a factory floor more times than you would think. Things have to be able to get from A to B in as quick a time as possible, but also in a safe manner. Health and safety in the workplace has become very prevalent and governments take a very extreme outlook if you as an employer are not putting things in place to protect your employees. Fines can be issued and businesses can be closed down until they follow all health and safety protocols. It is your job as an employer to provide a safe working place for your employees and that includes making it a lot easier for them to lift and move heavy equipment and stock.
One excellent way to make life a lot easier for your employees and for yourself, is to be able to add castor wheels to any item. This makes the item instantly easier to move around and it adds mobility to your whole operation. You save yourself a lot of time when it comes to loading and unloading, and it cuts down on the number of injuries that occur in the workplace. All of this is helping to save you time and money and so you shouldn’t really have to be convinced as an employer, to make the investment in castor wheels. However, if you’re still not sold on the idea, then maybe the following benefits can help to change your mind.
– They are incredibly versatile – There are so many different types of castors available and they come in many different sizes and materials to suit most situations. As an example, you can use plate mounted steel castors to move really heavy equipment around, and you can add swivel castors to allow your employees to be able to move any item in any direction that they need. These castors are especially useful for heavy office furniture like desks and office chairs. Certain castors, such as some lines offered by Richmond Wheel & Castor Co, are made to be able to withstand high temperatures, chemicals and for also transporting items that need to be moved smoothly and softly. Such items will be sensitive calibrated equipment.
– They are strong and durable – Castors are especially suitable for a large factory and industrial applications and some castors can handle up to 50,000 KG’s of weight which makes them incredibly resilient and they are really built to last a long time. Not only do they provide ease of movement, but they also provide the necessary support to the equipment so that it doesn’t get damaged when it is being moved.
Castor wheels provide the perfect solution to your mobility issues all around your business and your staff will thank you for investing in them.
