INCREASED SAFETY, EFFICIENCY, AND PRODUCTIVITY.
Running safe, efficient and productive packaging lines is one of Quaker Oats’ keys to success. The cereal company uses miles of polyethylene, shrink-wrap, and other packaging material every year, all of it requiring loading onto packaging machines. In the past, this involved multiple workers lifting heavy objects or navigating bulky forklifts into tight, unsafe spaces, increasing the chance of workplace injuries, and slowing the production line down.
In partnership with R on I, Group O experts introduced Quaker to the Lift-O-Flex portable lifter, a battery-powered, portable machine that makes a standard forklift look like something out of the paleolithic era. Capable of loads up to 250-pounds, the Lift-O-Flex takes on the most difficult lifting jobs with gentle, controllable force via a simple handheld control device.
Bottom Line Impact
Group O evaluated Quaker Oat’s lifting methods and found a safer, more efficient solution that allowed the company to reduce labor costs, decrease the odds of workplace injuries and save money and waste. Group O can audit your production line to look for ways to improve and to help keep your employees safe and productive.
