Sturtevant, WI -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/23/2017 -- Topper Industrial recently introduced a blog series regarding common myths about industrial carts in fork truck free manufacturing environments. The blog discussed the misconception that industrial carts are not safe.
Manufactured in the USA, industrial carts by Topper Industrial have more safety and ergonomic patented solutions than any other provider of these safe products. With more than two decades of manufacturing excellence, products featuring all-welded heavy gauge steel construction with a tough powder coated finish, have earned a reputation for strength, durability and longevity, even in the most demanding applications.
Far safer than fork trucks, there is often a need from industrial carts to undergo an Engineer to Order unique build while supporting custom equipment for lean initiatives, special applications and integrated systems. The heavy-duty industrial safety products are driving the North American Fork Truck Free initiatives because they deliver both quality and value.
The fact is that fork trucks are among the most dangerous pieces of equipment on the plant floor. OSHA statistics indicate that there are roughly 85 forklift fatalities and 34,900 serious injuries each year, with 42 percent of the forklift fatalities from the operator's being crushed by a tipping vehicle.
