Increasing health and safety in the wood products industry

Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth.

Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum decided to leave for the far World of Grammar. The Big Oxmox advised her not to do so, because there were thousands of bad Commas, wild Question Marks and devious Semikoli, but the Little Blind Text didn’t listen.

She packed her seven versalia, put her initial into the belt and made herself on the way. When she reached the first hills of the Italic Mountains, she had a last view back on the skyline of her hometown Bookmarksgrove, the headline of Alphabet Village and the subline of her own road, the Line Lane. Pityful a rethoric question ran over her cheek, then she continued her way. On her way she met a copy. The copy warned the Little Blind Text, that where it came from it would have been rewritten a thousand times and everything that was left from its origin would be the word "and" and the Little Blind Text should turn around and return to its own, safe country. But nothing the copy said could convince her and s

TAWI – for a safe and profitable wood products industry

Lifting any large or heavy product requires power, and positioning these cumbersome products accurately requires a high level of dexterity and precision. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the wood products industry, where lifting and moving large and heavy pieces is not only common, it is a daily requirement.

Ironically enough, the very things that make MFD or plywood sheets such great materials are also the factors that make them so difficult to lift safely. A full-size sheet of ¾” plywood weighs from 25 to 32 kg, MFD even more. And if you are producing products from the raw materials, then the challenges change along the way. Moving the raw material from storage to the workstations along the production line, moving the partially finished product along the line, and then loading the finished product for transport – all require multiple employees and pose numerous risks to both your workforce and the products. And the finished product – furniture – comes in all shapes and sizes, which places further challenges to your manual lifting procedures.

Did you know?

  • Manual handling is a leading cause of work-related injuries when dealing with wood sheets or furniture
  • Manual handling can cause strains and sprains, back injuries, lacerations and fractures, and even fatalities
  • Manual handling injuries often stem from jobs involving heavy or awkward loads
  • Repetitive stress injuries arise from tasks that involve difficulty in gripping, excessive use of force, repetition, twisting, and other awkward postures
  • Stress and strain injuries over time can result in permanent disability

A risk to your workers is a risk to your bottom line

  1. Lower production
  2. Poor product quality
  3. Drop in customer satisfaction
  4. Decreased productivity
