The Importance of Floor Scales in Industry

By Joy Shiela Subscribe to RSS | January 25th 2012 | Views:

Big industrial companies make use of different kinds of scales. The ordinary scales are what we regularly see in the marketplace and grocery stores. In order to protect the consumers, the government is closely checking the calibration of the weighing scales obtained in the marketplace. Government regulations assure the consumers that the weight of the merchandise being bought is proportionate to the price of the product in any business transaction. Because of the high dangers of fraud in the marketplace, it is the right of the individual customer to be protected.

Within the companies, the ordinary weighing scales are also used for the small items and products which can conveniently be placed on top of the equipment. Inside the industrial warehouses, we may also see weighing scles of a different kind because they are designed for heavy loads such as drums or containers. These types of scales are called the floor scales with the worker safety as the major consideration. Safety of the workers is actually the key concern of companies in order to avoid the risks of mishaps on the job. There are heavy loads that cannot really be carried by even a good number of workers that the use of hand lifts or forklifts are encouraged for safety.

To facilitate the weighing of heavy items and equipment, the floor scale is generally an inch and a half only from the ground to allow the workers to naturally push the load on the floor scale. Side rails are often built beside the floor scale to optimize the security measures for the worker’s protection. When accidents happen on the job, it becomes the responsibility of the company to shoulder the expenditures of medical care.

There are floor scales that are designed as part of a conveyor system. While this is certainly useful it can be discouraged when the drums need to weighed in an upright position. We can never predict when the heavy load will topple over the conveyor side bars so better be prepared. If the conveyor is important for filling the empty drums and containers, then it must be manually supported to prevent spillages and toppling. Workers should always be physically and mentally fit for work in order to prevent job related accidents which may result to injury.
