Brunswick Corporation’s New York Mills Operation in Minnesota received a $10,000 matching safety grant from the state’s OSHA branch.

The purpose of the grant is to help businesses improve safety processes. The grant application was written to help Brunswick acquire three CartMovers, motorized hand carts that can move up to 10 tons. The compact carts are designed for use in tight spaces and can handle inclines and other changes in a factory’s layout without excessive pushing or pulling.

The carts have handlebar controls with features that include reverse. They are electrically powered and have rechargeable batteries.

“These carts are designed to allow users to safely manipulate heavier loads and objects,” Theresa Burns, safety committee member at Brunswick, said in a statement. “We believe using these carts will be significantly safer and will result in better ergonomics to help further aid our employees.”
