* Today's range of lifting solutions can be matched to almost any handling process but the following checklist should provide a useful guide when making a selection. The system should:
* prevent product damage
* be efficient
* increase productivity
* eliminate health and safety concerns
* provide a safe working environment for the operator
* minimise labour costs or increase labour effectiveness
* operate at optimum speed
* be cost effective.
The benefits of using lifting equipment can be measured in a variety of ways - for example through increased production or simply a more effective distribution of labour. An important factor to bear in mind is the fact that the cost of a single accident could easily outweigh the initial outlay of installing a safer, more efficient system.
