Changed from using trash receptacles that were manually moved and dumped to using gaylords that are handled by forklifts.
Cutter scrap used to be placed in trash receptacles. When the bins were full, employees would manually pull/roll them to the recycle area, lift the containers and empty the contents. This led to several possible risk factors – force required to pull the full receptacles, force required to upend them, and awkward postures/forces required to empty contents.
We now use gaylords for operators to dispose of cutter scrap. When a Gaylord is full, a forklift retrieves it and takes it to the recycle area. This has eliminated all manual pushing, pulling and lifting.
This change has removed muscle strain inherent in manually moving heavily loaded trash receptacles and emptying them.
