Reducing Workplace Injuries
In 2019/2020, 480,000 workers suffered from work-related musculoskeletal disorders (new or longstanding), with 8.9 million working days lost. The risk of injury is also much higher in manufacturing, with manufacturing, the food service and wholesale industries all reporting higher than average rates of self-reported workplace injury.
At QJS (UK) Ltd, we offer flexible solutions to food manufacturers to improve labour efficiency and operative safety.
Nita SC Speed Control
Retractable Hose Reel Systems
The Nita SC Speed Control brake reduces the reel rewinding speed in case of accidental hose release. For this reason, it is possible for the operators to work in safer conditions avoiding unexpected breakages of the tools connected with the hose.
Slower Retract Speed
With the NITA SC Speed Control System, retract speed is reduced to a safer 0.7 meters per second, compared to the industry average reel at 2 meters per second.
Unique Brake Locking Feature
The Nita SC Brakes ratchet is designed to prevent accidental release by pressure shocks. This unique feature stops the pawl from suddenly disengaging the spring and causing the hose to retract without warning.
