A vertical reciprocating conveyor (VRC) is a type of freight lift that efficiently raises and lowers materials between levels. Importantly, freight lifts are not elevators—they have distinct safety standards (ASME Standard B20.1) and cannot be used to lift human workers.
Custom manufacturing allows you to achieve a perfect match between industrial carts and the materials they carry. This perfect match between the carrier and the carried produces a range of benefits.
Ladder hoists aren’t just for roofers. Any workplace that combines material handling with overhead work can benefit from equipment that supports lifting and climbing at once — and that includes the warehousing industry.
In 2021, the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) published a proposed rule for heat injury and prevention in both outdoor and indoor workplaces.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has announced a national program geared towards warehouses, processing facilities, distribution centers, and high-risk retail establishments.
Vertical Reciprocating Conveyors (VRC) are efficient, safe, and affordable vertical lifts designed to move materials between levels. They’re essential for many multi-story warehouses, mezzanine-equipped manufacturing floors, and automated conveyor systems that use both vertical and horizontal space.
Scissor lifts are frequently used as work platforms — and anytime you’re asking workers to use heavy equipment, you need to think about compliance with relevant standards from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
Vertical reciprocating conveyors (VRCs) are a type of material handling infrastructure designed to move loads between levels. They serve the same function as freight elevators, with one key difference: People can ride freight elevators, whereas VRCs are intended only for materials.
Specialized electrical carts from BHS making moving light fixtures around the jobsite quicker, easier, and safer. But what about your tools and equipment? New features like equipment hooks and compartment trays make BHS Light Fixture Carts (LFCs) into all-purpose material handling solutions for lighting installations.
Typical loading docks have a 4-foot drop-off, which can be dangerous to workers and equipment. This is not hypothetical: Forklift operators have been fatally injured by falls from loading docks, and it’s difficult to overstate the hazard posed by an open dock door.
