Worker Health and Safety programs advise that using tools such as Hoist Hanger will help prevent technician injuries and will save a company money by reducing work-related injury claims.
Hoist Hanger is a tool that allows your technicians to remove and re-install wheels from a standing position; virtually eliminating, lower back, shoulder and neck injuries/ strains. With no need to bend down at the waist to lower a wheel to the shop floor, (and even more difficult) pick it back up, a number of important benefits occur:
Workers Compensation claims for back, neck, and shoulder injuries will be greatly reduced, or eliminated entirely.
Insurers look favorably on Hoist Hangers, and discount your rates.
Operations requiring wheel/ tire removal will be completed more quickly and efficiently.
Expensive wheels will not be damaged as a result of dropping them on the shop floor, or having tools or parts drop onto them from the lift.
Technician fatigue will be reduced, as will sick days off. Employee morale is enhanced.
Technicians will be able to maneuver around the vehicle more freely.
Customers will appreciate the professional look and approach to handling their expensive wheels and tires.
Shop cleanliness will be enhanced by not having hazardous wheels/ tires laying around; shop floor cleaning will be performed more easily.
