Palamatic is a leading global force in materials handling. We supply lifting, handling and powder process solutions to exceed all Health and Safety Regulations. Our solutions are used in many manufacturing industries including aerospace, automotive, beverage, chemical, food, packaging, logistics and woodworking.
Our design philosophy is born out of the desire to continually improve, innovate and invent. The success of our products means they are often imitated but never bettered.
As experts in handling and containment, and proven H&S Handling, you can rest assured that our solutions are fully compliant for very high potent and dangerous compounds (APIs). Your legal obligations are met and your product and workforce are protected.
Palamatic lifters are designed to exceed HSE guidelines. We reduce operator effort and fatigue which reduces the chances of manual handling injuries; and repetitive strain injuries of the arms, hands and wrists.
We are also experts in cGMP Materials Handling problems for;
- Fine Chemical
- Clean Process
- FDA/MHRA regulated environments
- Foods, including infant food
According to HSE figures, manual handling is responsible for more than a third of all injuries resulting in three or more days absence. More than half of all workdays lost to work-related health problems involve injured muscle, bone or connecting tissue, collectively known as musculoskeletal disorders (MSD). ”MSD is the greatest health and safety challenge for Europe”. Over 40 million EU workers are affected by MSD. These injuries (accidents not included) cost employers over €385 million or between 0.5% and 2% of the Gross National Product,” a significant burden on the EU economy”.*
