Why Rolls Cages should be kept Maintained or Repaired

Posted 10 March 2020

There are some statistics according to the UK’s Health and Safety Executive, that have shown around a third of injuries that happen in a workplace that uses roll cages, happen because of damaged roll cages. If used incorrectly or if a roll cage is damaged or broken, there is a higher risk of potential trapped fingers, bruises, and even cages toppling over if they are stacked incorrectly. It is your brand reputation that is at stake if a problem occurs with any equipment or machinery.

Here's more about why roll cages should be properly maintained.

Business as Usual

If you have a business that uses roll cages, and they are maintained on a regular basis, then quite simply, you will see the benefit when it comes to your workforce and the business running. If employees using the roll cage are getting hurt, it results in them needing some time off work, or their job needing to be altered because they can’t push or pull the cages, then productivity will start to slow down. The business will be running less efficiently, or the team that you do have will be working to exhaustion. 

Health and Safety

From a health and safety point of view, roll cage repair and maintenance is something that is so important. As an employer, you have the responsibility to take care of your employees and make sure that they are working in a place that is safe for them to be. So just from that point of view, and avoiding any litigation, maintaining your roll cages is important. Plus, combined with the above point of business as usual, you don’t want to have employees getting hurt or injured as a result of your lack of maintenance of the roll cages. The health and safety of your team and your workplace is so important, and is what will keep your business running and growing.

Brand Reputation

When it comes to roll cage refurbishment or dealing with a damaged roll cage, you need to consider a skilled roll cage repairer. It is your business and your employees, and because there are so many important things at stake, you need to think about who you use for the maintenance, in order to protect your business and your team.
