How A Pallet Wrapper Can Decrease Potential Health & Safety Issues

How A Pallet Wrapper Can Decrease Potential Health And Safety Issues

 If your business is in any way involved in the distribution of product around Australia or the world, you will probably, at some point, have considered the use of an automated pallet wrapper.

From a health safety perspective, introducing a pallet wrapper, into your dispatch operations has the following immediate benefits:

  • The stability and high holding force that the stretch film creates offers a much safer wrapped pallet, which is far less likely to fall over and cause injury or road accidents during transit
  • The application of the pallet film is undertaken by the pallet wrapping machine, hence significantly reducing the likelihood of sprains and strains of your staff members than if using manual wrapping techniques
  • Goods wrapped and transported within warehouses on pallets reduces the likelihood of injuries through lifting individual items or cartons, as good are moved around as a secure palletized load.

Further, the use of a pallet wrapping machine using stretch wrap offers more advantages, including:

  • It’s the most cost effective method of keeping cartons together in one shipment
  • The product, if using transparent pallet stretch film, is easily identifiable
  • Shipments are protected from the elements, such as rain and sun, and product arrives in a protected, untampered state
  • It can lead to highly efficient warehouse operations, as goods can be wrapped as soon as they are produced / picked and are ready to ship almost immediately; the average time to wrap a fully loaded pallet would be around 30 seconds
  • From a marketing perspective, the wrapped product is professional looking and able to be branded
