When it comes to specifying the right equipment within budget constraints, collaboration between fleet and safety professionals is crucial, according to an opinion column by Sean Lyden, in Utility Fleet Professional magazine. That collaboration applies as well to safety products and supplies.
One of the leading causes of worker’s comp claims each year, are injuries from lifting heavy and awkward items. When it comes to outrigger enabled equipment operations, these incidents can be minimized within budget constraints when stakeholders work together to develop standards for product selection and operations.
DICA’s SafetyTech® Outrigger Pads are impervious to absorption (water or other liquid weight gain), splinters, and performance degradation over time. SafetyTech Pads are designed with ergonomic Patented TuffGrip® Handles that are comfortable, guaranteed unbreakable and reduce hand fatigue. Round models can easily be rolled into place, reducing the potential for injuries to occur.
From a value perspective, SafetyTech Pads are guaranteed unbreakable and consistently provide decades of service in utility environments. These combined benefits have made DICA Outrigger Pads a favorite choice of utility safety and fleet managers looking to balance budget and safety concerns.
As the Utility Fleet Professional column concludes, it makes sense that “safety and fleet professionals want to see lineworkers and equipment operators got home safe to their families. So, it makes sense that they should work together to build the safest fleet possible in a way that doesn’t break the budget.”
The DICA team can help you achieve that goal by working to identify your needs and provide solutions with products, information, and sizing to position your fleet for success.
