Wrapping a Pallet with a Pallet Wrapping Machine verses by hand

Lets face it, having someone running around a pallet, wrapping it by hand in a busy dispatch area can be a recipe for disaster. Fromm Packaging has created the following videos to help demonstrate the four main benefits of wrapping your pallets using specialised machines verses by hand.

Safety
With warehouse injuries on the rise in Australia, its time to start looking at safer options for your employees. According to Safe Work Australia, 33%* of all serious claims were the result of muscular stress while lifting or handling objects. Somewhere along the way they will likely trip or worse experience lower back, neck, elbow or knee injuries from the repetitive action. If you have to wrap by hand we have invented a new stretch film that requires absolute minimal force to apply the product to the pallet.?
Good stretch wrapping machines eliminate the need for hand wrapping and reduce the amount of potential OH&S claims you will receive.
