A pleasant temperature, clean air and especially a good sitting posture during work. Unfortunately these principles are not always a matter of course for cabin operators, even though a healthy work environment is of the utmost importance. Too often, crane operators contend with extreme fatigue, concentration problems and chronic neck and back problems. At Merford we believe that everyone, anywhere in the world, is entitled to a safe and comfortable workplace.
A special work environment
A cabin is a special workplace. For years we have delved into the work conditions of crane operators. We frequently observe their work, conduct surveys among them and especially listen well to their wishes, complaints and suggestions for improvement. Every detail in our cabins counts: ranging from the synchronised movement of arm rests to provide improved ergonomics, to optimal visibility, clean air and responsible sound and vibration levels. By paying attention to every detail and every specific wish, we enable operators to work with greater enjoyment and efficiency. In many instances the use of our cabins translates into a demonstrable decrease in absence due to illness and into higher operator productivity.
Each cabin can be fully designed to meet your wishes, and of course, our cabins meet all legal requirements. In addition, we often closely work with the end-user, the crane manufacturer and the supplier of control systems, in a team setting. In this triangle, we are a valued and reliable partner who provides advice where necessary, guarantees high quality and delivers on time. If you are curious about our cabins and their ergonomic layout, we would be pleased to tell you more!
