Newspaper Printer Roller Cleaning Causes Injury
Extended reach with downward pressure triggers frequent shoulder injuries and exacerbates back pain issues (strain/sprain).
Large rollers require continuous cleaning during and between production runs. Continuous downward pressure required to “scrub” rollers with special pads on topside and backsides.
Designed and developed specially configured cleaning tool for holding pads and providing downwards and upwards cleaning/scrubbing pressure without injury/pain trigger.
At-risk conditions eliminated and roller cleaning efficiency improved.
