Retro-fit Drive System (RDS) Benefits:

  One of the primary benefits of using Powered Hand Trucks is to prevent the strains and pains associated with moving heavy loads, especially up and down ramps/inclines.  Overexerting the body when manually moving materials or equipment from one location to another often leads to MSD’s (Musculoskeletal Disorders).  When a Powered Hand Truck is used risk of an overexertion injury is significantly reduced, which in the long run will reduce workman’s compensation and insurance claims.

  Liberty Mutual also surveyed executives for their thoughts on workplace safety.  Ninety-five percent of business executives report that workplace safety has a positive impact on a company's financial performance.  Fully 61 percent of these executives indicated their companies received $3 or more for each $1 spent improving workplace safety.
