Why manual handling is imperative for safety in the removals industry

Oct 12th 2015 at 5:10 AM

The removals industry has evolved by leaps and bounds. From mechanized modus operandi to automating numerous processes, technology and infrastructure have undergone a paradigm shift. Today, a moving company is more dependent on mechanized hauling and automated handling of goods and that has adversely affected the practice of manual handling. Manual handling is imperative in the removals industry. Fewer people are trained in manual handling and thus you are likely to have fewer options if you want your moving company to manage your possessions manually.

There are two aspects of manual handling as far as safety is concerned. One is desirable and the other not so. It is the latter that has made many people proponents of mechanized and automated operations. Manual handling is imperative for safety of your possessions. When you have to invest in removals in Blackpool, you would want all your possessions to be safely managed, hauled with care, packaged well and transported with absolute tenderness but efficiently. While mechanized and automated operations increase efficiency to a certain degree, they don’t contribute to the safety of your possessions. Automated processes cannot always distinguish between the level of care a fragile item needs and what a sturdy object would call for. Thus, a preset or generic approach will be highly detrimental to the whole process of removals in Blackpool.

Manual handling has some risks for the personnel working for a moving company but that is more because people are not being extensively trained in the process. Earlier, when you would have hired a man and van in Blackpool, you wouldn’t even think of wondering if the movers are trained in manual handling, packaging, hauling, transporting, unloading and then unpacking the stuffs. Today, many technicians are not really trained on manual handling and that has increased the risks of the personnel. Manual handling is unavoidable in its entirety. You cannot just wish away the whole practice because no matter how much the whole process gets automated or mechanized there will be certain tasks that will call for manual intervention.

It is necessary that every moving company offering removals in Blackpool acknowledge the imperativeness of manual handling. If not, homeowners and commercial property owners or whoever is moving from one place to another will have to consider a moving company that does. Automation is always desirable but only to the extent where it is relevant.
