DJProducts has introduced the battery powered WasteCaddy Dumpster Mover.
Insurance data shows that the trash room is the area of highest risk within multi-family properties. The most common injuries are related to personnel moving heavy dumpsters from the trash/compactor room to the pickup site. Injuries range from simple back strain, to slip/fall and pinch/crush injuries, all the way to lacerations and broken bones.
With the WasteCaddy, personnel can reportedly improve productivity by as much as 50%, and employees of any height, age or gender are now able to move these heavy dumpsters while reducing risk of injury. The WasteCaddy was developed to help lower workers comp claim frequency, and consequently reduce insurance premiums.
