Danger is imminent when using heavy machinery, especially cranes. Cranes are frequently used to move shipping containers—crane safety is a threat not only to the crane operators but anyone around. Even with the proper training, accidents still happen. According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics,
“From 2011 to 2017, the Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries (CFOI) reported 297 total crane-related deaths, an average of 42 per year over this seven-year period.”
Crane accidents can happen at construction sites, factories, plants, roadsides and dockyards.
They seriously affect the safety of the workers and bystanders. Not only can the crane structure injure or kill people, but whatever the crane is holding. For example, from Maritime Injury Center,
“The workers were not experienced in using the particular lifting system and didn’t secure the load well enough. As the person operating the crane that lifted and moved the bars swung the load out toward the pier, one of the bars fell. It weighed 1,300 pounds, struck a worker on the ground, and killed him.”
This demonstrates why using a QuickLoadz for container handling is vital.
According to the Crane Inspection and Certification Bureau Inc.,
“90% of crane accidents occur due to human error.”
Why not eliminate human error?
QuickLoadz is simple to use and has easy training. A QuickLoadz can eliminate or avoid the need for cranes loading and unloading containers. By gently pushing a container off a tilted bed, rather than suspending it in the air, you can eliminate the issue of a container swinging and hitting someone. The gentle 8° loading angle ensures the cargo inside the container will be safe.
Cranes are not the safest way to transport cargo.
For many industries, it’s important to ensure the cargo is not damaged. If you were to use a QuickLoadz, your cargo would slide gently on or off our trailer or truck bed. We also have a built-in rear-view camera standard on all our models. The camera helps drivers see where the container is located and where it can be unloaded. These features can ensure the safety and security of a company’s cargo. Keep your company and employees safe. Get a QuickLoadz.
