Ergo Back-Up Handle
Reduce back strain and improve forklift operator ergonomics with the Ergo Back-up Handle. Forklift operators who are required to travel frequently in reverse often grab the overhead guard. This is a dangerous practice and has resulted in serious injuries.
The Back-up Handle is placed inside the overhead guard and allows a forklift operator’s hand to remain within the forklift at all times. This gives the operator something to hang onto while they are reversing the forklift thus reducing back strain and providing a safer place to set the hand. As well, the forklift operator does not have to take their hands off the steering wheel when using the Back-up Handle’s optional horn button.
