During the last twelve months, we have all had to adapt to a ‘new’ daily norm with an increase in remote working; including operational services teams.
This was the challenge that Nottingham City Council faced when reviewing their street cleansing operations in the pandemic. How could this local authority successfully and safely mobilise their street cleansing operatives with lightweight litter clearance tools to support mobile/solo working straight from home or the depot under strict social distancing measure.
Previously the council’s operatives would work in larger teams to tackle litter and had to regularly use and carry heavy bulky barrows; risking manual handling injuries and significantly slowed down performance.
The council implemented Street Boss – the complete one stop mobile cleansing solution to undertake daily litter picking tasks safety; supporting operational efficiency and increasing on street litter collection capacity by 402% vs a standard bag hoop! 50% lighter than conventional barrows, Street Boss made litter collection quicker and more efficient than the larger heavy barrow – mobilise lone working during the pandemic
“We truly believe this system will help to revolutionise street cleansing as we know it – increasing productivity and safer mobile working; recovering the unit cost back in 8 weeks in operational savings. The risk of sustaining an injury from lifting heavy barrows has been significantly reduced with staff reporting 100% reduction in back strain complaints since we introduced Street Boss into our operational fleet.”.
Designed and manufactured in Britain from 51% recycled materials, Street Boss is 50% lighter than conventional barrows; equipped with a litter clearance tool at hand for every cleansing task – perfect for remote working and increasing workforce productivity. Collect and carry, segregate and sort, scoop and sweep, smarter, safer and further than ever before!
