Cabel Drum Manual Handling

A Birmingham company has been fined £170,000 after an employee narrowly avoided death when a one and a half tonne cable drum and rolled over him. The employee suffered broken ribs, a collapsed lung and temporarily lost sight and spent eight days in the hospital after the accident. 

The accident happened when the employee attempted to move a drum filled with a 'significant' amount of cable from a weighing scale to a ramp. He was unable to push the drum and so attempted to pull it. This caused his foot to become stuck and the employee fell backward as the drum rolled down the ramp, causing severe crush injuries. Luckily, there was a cap which the employees head passed through, only just avoiding a fatality. 

It was said that the company in question had carried out this unsafe system of working for around seven years. The prosecutor stated that the company should have had a system in place which removed this type of manual handling from the job. He believed it was an 'accident waiting to happen'. The judge agreed and believed that the employee had been given a 'substantial weight to manipulate'. 

Manual handling of this sort should have the right equipment and procedures in place to avoid this type of accident occurring and hefty fines. Handling of substantial weight such as this may require drum handling equipment to move it safely and efficiently. 

One of our main aims here at PalleTrucks-Trolleys is to make every working environment as safe and efficient as possible. From manual handling equipment to lifting gear, we have plenty of items which will make your warehouse a safer workplace for everyone. It's never worth putting your employee's safety at risk!
