Articulated cover and ergonomic handling box

Report

Rising of municipal castings = one of the most painful tasks of the cleaning operative, according to INRS research.

Cause

- Excessive mass of the covers.

- Clogging of the covers → addition of effort (+ 50% minimum).

- Diversity of the types of manhole covers and the handling tools.

- Lack in training on the effective "postures".

Consequences

- Onset or aggravation of lumbago.

- Intense cardiac solicitations.

- The prevention of these physiological disorders is conditioned by: the opening convenience of the covers, the presence "help for the handling", a "ergonomic" posture, weights of castings "acceptable"

The performances of PAMREX / VIATOP manhole covers as regards ergonomics facilitate the interventions on the networks and improve the security of exploitation.

Handling box

The measurement of the compressive force on the intervertebral discs enables a scientific evaluation of the physical constraints related to the handling of loads.

The value of 350 daN is internationally recognized like a maximum.

The handling box of Pamrex manhole covers enables the uprising of the covers with efforts significantly lower than this value by using the crowbar in the housing inclined at 35°.
