When working on heavy or large products or assemblies on the workbench, the need to lift the product is taken away when working on a GYRO-STAT static safe turntable. 100% safe to use in an EPA anti-static protected area. Ideal for use within the electronic assembly industry, but can also be used in any other industry.
This range of ESD safe conductive GYRO-STAT turntables, designed and manufactured in the UK by VODEX makes working on heavy and awkward assemblies easy! Each turntable can withstand 100Kg and will prevent back injuries caused by lifting heavy equipment. A manual lock prevents spinning temporarily if required.
Work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), including manual handling injuries, are the most common type of occupational ill health in the UK and their prevention is a priority for HSC/E.
The Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992 (as amended) establish a clear hierarchy of measures for dealing with risks from manual handling.
Work-related Musculoskeletal Disorders
Working practices associated with higher levels of musculoskeletal disorder (MSD) include:
Bending and twisting
Repeating an action too frequently
Working in an awkward or uncomfortable position
The latest estimates from the Labour Force Survey (LFS) show that in Great Britain alone, total number of MSD cases in 2011/12 was 439 000 out of a total 1 073 000 for all work-related illnesses.
