Magline Andrea Horner Discusses LiftPlus in Occupational Health and Safety Magazine


Standish, MI -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/19/2016 -- Magline LiftPlus is an alternative to fork trucks and the safety concerns they bring to the job. Manufacturing journalist, "This powered product demonstrates the innovation commitment to the manufacturing and materials handling sectors and those customers who requested durable, ergonomic, and quality equipment to allow safe use and transport without wasting time waiting for forklifts," said Andrea Horner, Magline vice president of marketing, in the current issue of Occupational Health & Safety magazine.

LiftPlus is a tool in the fast-growing North American Fork Truck Free initiative. Not only is the fork truck too much equipment to handle the task at hand, up to 120 minutes a day waiting for fork trucks are wasted. In materials handling, fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) can be quickly retrieved using an all-in-one lift, transporter, and positioner without a forklift. The workforce multiplier kicks in productivity with no need for special training or licensing (a prerequisite of fork trucks). The ergonomic answer to moving heavy items without a fork truck, this innovative approach is designed for ease of use, higher productivity, and keeping workers on the job and free from injuries. It lifts 350 pounds easily with an all-metal frame platform and a screw-driven lift that delivers smooth precision that hydraulics or chains cannot match.

Occupational Health & Safety has been an industry leader for over 84 years and continues to provide an effective collection of media outlets for promoting health and safety products and services.
