Why it’s revolutionary

Overstretching and multiple products are a thing of the past, the UNGER Stingray is designed to make cleaning professionals’ jobs that little bit easier and is the solution for all of your indoor window and large surface cleaning needs.

This revolutionary piece of equipment was launched as the most efficient indoor cleaning tool ever, cleaning windows and surfaces up to 25% faster and using up to 39% less chemicals than traditional methods such as a window spray and cloth.

Thanks to its Easy-Click-Pole technology, the UNGER Stingray can clean indoor surfaces at heights of up to four metres. Its precision spraying system dispenses the optimal amount of 3M Scotchguard, minimising drips and reducing the amount of product wastage.

The UNGER Stingray’s triangular shape maximises the surface area covered while making it easy to clean awkward edges and corners. Its microfibre tripad easily glides over every surface, eliminating dust, fingerprints, grease and is machine washable for up to 200 times.

We’ve got your back when it comes to Manual Handling

Welcome back! I am delighted to announce that Jangro has added a brand new module to its award-winning suite of e-learning modules. Due to popular demand the manual handling course teaches employees everything they need to know about this vitally important subject. I’m here to share some top tips on best practice when it comes to moving anything in the workplace.

What is Manual Handling?

Anything that involves you changing the position of something is manual handling. So, whether it’s lifting, lowering, pushing, pulling or carrying you need to ensure you are doing it correctly and safely in order to minimise the risk of a workplace injury.

You might not think it but manual handling is something we do everyday, moving an office chair to a different desk, lifting an awkward shaped box from a shelf or loading a delivery van. It is important to remember that just because these tasks are familiar and something you do everyday, doesn’t mean an injury can’t still occur.

Employees have duties to take reasonable care of their own health and safety as well as others who may be affected by their actions, communicating with their employers to ensure all health and safety duties are met efficiently.

In the workplace it is the employees responsibility to:

  • Follow appropriate systems of work laid down for their safety
  • Make proper use of equipment provided for their safety
  • Co-operate with their employer on health and safety matters
  • Inform the employer if they identify hazardous handling activities
  • Take care to ensure that their activities do not put others at risk

Lifting is as easy as L-I-T-E 

Learning how to handle and lift different kinds of objects is imperative, but so is the planning and preparation.

Here’s a little Jangro Genius acronym to help you get in the swing of things when manual handling.

Let’s look at these points in detail. Ask yourself the following questions before manual handling any object to prevent any injuries.

Load

  • Is the load heavy?
  • Is it sharp?
  • Is it likely to shift suddenly?
  • Do you need help?
  • Can you break the load down in to smaller weights?

Individual

  • Do you have any current injuries or health problems?
  • Are your clothes likely to catch on the load?
  • Will your hands slip
  • Are your shoes suitable?
  • If you don’t think you will be able to lift the item, don’t. 

Task

  • What is the task?
  • Are you moving one item or numerous?
  • Will you be able to use a trolley?
  • Is it vital that the object is moved?

Environment

  • Do you have enough space to avoid over reaching or twisting?
  • Is your route clear?
  • Are there any doors or steps to negotiate?
  • Will people get in your way?
