Cannon Equipment has long been known as the industry leader in material handling carts, with a focus on custom cart design solutions. Sold under the CannonCarts® brand name, our products are known in the industry as safe, reliable and long lasting. Cannon Equipment focuses on ergonomics in the design of every cart, one of the many areas of differentiation between CannonCarts® and others in the marketplace. So much so that Cannon Equipment has developed a comprehensive Ergonomics material handling cart based manual designed to educate the marketplace on the importance of ergonomics in every aspect of material handling.
“As medical claims and workforce injuries continue to escalate in every area of manufacturing and distribution, our customers continue to seek ways to reduce work place injury exposure and lost time accidents,” said Bryce Malone, Vice President of Cart Sales for Cannon Equipment. “Ergonomics plays a critical role in understanding the different motions associated with possible injuries, and designing products to limit non-beneficial postures and movements is an area of great focus for us,” said Malone.
The new brochure focuses on the following areas of ergonomics:
• Definition of Ergonomics
• Postures (Neutral and Static)
• Lifting and Bending
• Range of Motion
• The ergonomic advantages Carts vs. Pallets
