Wellbeing and safety

Meat processing is a physical job and we are continually investing in technology to improve the health and wellbeing of staff. One example of this is the Palletising robot which reduces staff lifting heavy loads and repeat continuous movements required to load a pallet. The aich bone puller also assists with the once arduous job of deboning beef and is set at an ergonomic height for the operator. Another innovation that improves workplace safety is the the Guardian Bandsaw. The Guardian uses advanced vision detection to detect the operator’s blue gloves in 3D.If an operator gets too close to the blade it will come to a complete stop in milliseconds. This ensures the operator’s hand is protected from coming into contact with the moving blade.
