Maldon’s dubious claim to fame
Maldon’s dubious claim to fame is the fact that it was the site for the opening of the first self-service Tesco supermarket here in the UK. It is also home to the Maldon Crystal Salt Company, which harvests salt from the Blackwater Estuary, on which the town is situated.
The use of roll cages
One of the forms of manual handling aids used in the retail industry are manually propelled roll cages or wheeled racks. These are used to move goods around within retail stores and warehouses, as well as within factories too. They are also sometimes used in hotels for moving laundered clothing around.
The sizes and weights of roll cages
Although their design varies from industry to industry, they are essentially cages which are mounted on four-wheels. Heights vary anywhere from 1550 mm to 1830 mm. It should be borne in mind that the average operator cannot see above 1400 mm. When fully loaded these roll cages can weigh as much as 500 kg or more. Getting this sort of weight moving, steering it, and stopping it when necessary, can take a great deal of strength, and can easily cause injury.
Safety tips on propelling and controlling roll cages
If you use roll cages to help you to complete your work duties, you should be careful to move not more than one cage at a time, and to make sure that you do not move them faster than slow walking speed. Also note that it is ergonomically better to push the cage rather than to try pulling it. If you have to negotiate ramps or uneven surfaces, you should seek help.

If you’ve suffered an injury by using roll cages, and you believe your employer to be culpable, you are entitled to raise a Maldon accident at work compensation claim and we here at Accident Advice Helpline can help you to do so.
