Stop by to speak with a Konecranes safety expert at booth #3140.
Konecranes will feature its newest ergonomic lifting equipment along with a broad range of safety training programs at the ASSE Safety show held June 7-10 at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas, Texas. Attendees are invited to stop by booth #3140 to learn how Konecranes promotes a culture of safety in all aspects of material handling and how its lifting innovations, safety procedures and equipment advantages can transfer to your operation.
“We are committed to protecting the health and safety of each employee,” says Jim Skowron, Vice President Sales, Service, Region Americas“There is no job so important and no service so urgent, that we cannot take the time to perform our work safely and correctly.”
Safety innovations demonstrated at the show will include Konecranes XM workstation cranes equipped with the ATB AirBalancer lifting device, which aids in picking, lifting, moving and placing items by hand. It is one of the most agile new products introduced by global lifting leader Konecranes. Its low acquisition, operating and maintenance costs have made it an important new tool for industries that handle large, expensive or delicate components.
“With more companies implementing new rules about how much weight employees are allowed to move unaided, Konecranes AirBalancer and chain hoist solutions are increasingly in demand,” says Skowron.
Konecranes also promotes safety to its customers and subcontractors, providing lifting solutions in accordance with safety regulations. As part of this initiative, Konecranes Training Institute has become a resource where safe lifting habits are taught by crane professionals, either at the Institute, at regional locations in major cities or at customer sites.
“We invite everyone attending the ASSE Safety conference to visit booth #3140 to learn more about our light lifting solutions and training programs,” Skowron said.
