Traditionally, pallet wrapping was predominantly characterized by labor-intensive manual efforts, often leading to health-related problems. The transition from using rope to secure boxes during transportation marked a significant progression, with metal strapping being the initial innovation. However, the implementation of pallet wrap emerged as a solution to overcome issues associated with metal strapping, most notably addressing concerns about the high risk of injuries.
While contemporary wrapping still poses challenges, PalPakUSA has been introducing various innovations since 1967 to create a safer work environment and enhance wrapping comfort.
What are the hazards of pallet wrappers?
Pallet wrapping involves physically demanding tasks such as reaching above shoulders, bending, twisting, and extending forward, contributing to musculoskeletal risks and injury potential. Many pallet wrappers are associated with repetitive tasks and strenuous postures. The predominant workplace injury claims related to pallet wrapping stem from overexertion and repetitive motions. According to Workplace Safety and Prevention Services (WSPS), these factors account for 36% of the claims associated with this task.
