BT PRO LIFTER honoured in Dutch ergonomics awards

BT PRO LIFTER honoured in Dutch ergonomics awards The Dutch organisation BZV has awarded the BT PRO LIFTER the honour "Arbo Tip 2003". The PRO LIFTER is a hand truck with revolutionary difference. An innovative mechanism allows an operator to get the truck moving by simply pumping the handle. The force required to do this is only a third of what would be needed to start a conventional hand pallet truck, resulting in significant ergonomic benefits. The Arbo awards are for products that improve working environments through good design. BZV is a co-operative enterprise between about 5000 companies in the logistics and transport sectors - representing more than 100000 employees - that work together to improve working environments, and reduce the causes of problems such as absenteeism and work-related injuries. Every year BZV selects a number of products that have had a beneficial impact on working environments in the logistics and transport industry. This year, BT PRO LIFTER is one of four products that are appointed "Arbo Tip". A jury comprised of truck users, logistics professionals, and medical experts selected the winning products. The prize was awarded at the Logistica Fair in Utrecht in November 2003. You find pictures at: NEWS DESK/PRESS RELEASES.
