What is the best way to lift and move large rolls of industrial fabric?
To save the backs and knees of your employees, manual lifting is generally a bad option. Back injuries are one of the most common workplace safety and health concerns. for more information on back safety, see our previous blog: Save Your Back—Go Automatic.
Dollies are excellent options for moving things around, but when it comes to lifting, you’d still have to move it from one contraption to another—likely using backs and knees—and that’s only if you have a machine to lift it and not your employees’ backs. Pallet jacks would be a good option, but they aren’t really made for lifting rolls of industrial fabric.
Forklifts are excellent for moving large, heavy objects and lifting them much higher than any one person could. But just like pallet jacks, they aren’t made for lifting rolls. They just aren’t the right shape. They are also large, cumbersome, and require special training to use.
