How do you know if a Barrel or Drum Handling System is right for you?

There are a few telltale signs that you can observe in your workplace that might indicate the need for such a system. These signs are often overlooked in a busy and fast-paced work environment, but they are crucial indicators that it’s time to consider investing in a drum handling system. Here are some common guidelines or signs to look out for:

  • Frequent employee injuries related to lifting and moving drums or barrels
  • Difficulty in lifting or maneuvering heavy drums or barrels, leading to strain or fatigue
  • Inefficient handling processes that slow down productivity and waste time
  • Damage to drums or barrels during handling, leading to product loss and additional costs
  • Need for precise pouring or dispensing of drum contents, requiring tilting or rotation
  • Compliance with health and safety regulations that require safe and efficient handling of hazardous materials.
