Wire Shelving and Wire Baskets at Knox Private Hospital

The main sterile instrument tray storage room had 2 x Overhead Track Wire Shelving with 1800mm wide shelves. These were overloaded, and had caused OH& S /workcover claims, as staff when in a rush would enter the room and then try to move 3 or 4 mobile bays at one time.

IntraSpace was involved in the dismantling and removal of the old system and installing the new system. This all had to be done out of hours. The end result is that the room is set up in a neat and orderly manner, with 2 large access aisles & staff can easily find stock. More importantly, all workcover claims have been stopped and the ¾ shelves allow for safe manual handling of the trays.
