As the materials handling industry has evolved since Engineered Lifting Systems & Equipment (ELS) began providing custom engineered solutions more than 45 years ago, we have seen a tremendous amount of change – all for the betterment of workers and employers alike. The pressures to increase productivity while protecting workers through improved safety and ergonomic standards has never been higher. In an industry that is largely self-policed, the legal and moral onus on business owners to complete their due diligence and provide a safe working environment has resulted in an ever-increasing need for professional services, not just off-the-shelf solutions.
In Ontario, every lifting application must be certified by a Professional Engineer (licensed to practice in the appropriate field), all equipment must contain CSA and/or third-party certification to meet electrical and other safety standards, all welding must be completed by CWB licensed welders, all materials must meet CSA or other regulatory-body standards, and a Pre-Start Health & Safety Review must be completed to ensure equipment is safe for use. No longer can a company purchase materials handling equipment online without proper manufacturing documentation and proper implementation.
Engineered Lifting Systems & Equipment has been operating in this proper manner since our inception. We are owned and operated by professional engineers who are personally liable for everything we do, and we make sure that no corners are cut.
If you have a materials handling application, perform your due diligence and bring in an industry-leading corporation with access to many different manufacturers from around the world, as well as in-house design, fabrication, and machining. ELS can provide the independent review and recommendations to help you address your materials handling challenges.
