PowerMate and Safety

Your PowerMate is a Piece of Personal Protective Equipment.

  • No manual lifting required, PowerMate does 100% of the lifting.
  • Independent research finds PowerMate requires 87% less effort for the operator than a conventional hand truck.
  • Proven to reduce injuries and lost work days due to repetitive strain or fatigue.
  • Get injured workers back on the job sooner on modified duty using a PowerMate.
  • Lower Workers Compensation premiums.
The U.S. Department of Labor quotes $29,000 (2004 dollar figures) as the average cost of a single lost time injury (direct and indirect costs).
All Powermate Stair Climbers have the ability to lift loads on and off trucks or skip broken or damaged stairs - try that with a regular hand truck!
