MacLellan's Anti-Fatigue Solutions Address Ill-Health in Food Manufacturing Sector

12 Jan 2018

Anti-Fatigue Matting Solutions are more critical in 2018 than every before as the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) warns Food Manufacturers of increased unannounced Inspections.

HSE Inspections

The HSE has recently announced that a programme of inspections, starting from the beginning of January 2018, will focus on two of the main causes of ill-health in the Food Manufacturing sector:

  • occupational asthma from exposure to flour dust; and
  • Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs)

The MSDs element will predominantly look at lower back pain and upper limb disorders from manual handling activities and repetitive tasks across the sector.

Anti-Fatigue Solutions

MacLellan Rubber offer Anti-Fatigue solutions for standing workers that reduce stress and strain on backs, upper and lower limbs as well as Non Slip Safety matting for work areas, loading and unloading bays. 

Specialist products for #FoodSafe environments include: Anti-Microbial Workstation Mats, Autoclavable Mats and Lightweight, Quick Drain Runner Matting for slipper conditions.
