Earth Day is this Sunday, April 22, and one of the main goals of the movement is to reduce emissions that contribute to health impacts and air quality across the world. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the use of fossil fuels contributes to:
• Temperature: Increasing greenhouse gases are linked to rising temperatures
• Air Quality: Greenhouse gases are linked to ozone layer depletion which is implicated in increased respiratory health problems
Inside your warehouse applications, electrically-powered equipment can have a positive impact on the air quality, and in turn, have a positive impact on your employees’ health. At one point, fuel-powered engines were the only answer for many of your warehouse and material handling applications, but the industry has come a long way and that’s no longer the case. Today’s electric equipment is designed to handle even your toughest inside jobs.
