Ergo Must Have: Collapsible Rolling Toolbox

by Jennie Gober, AEP

Before saying anything more on this product, I must fully disclose something.  While I feel very strongly that this product would be very useful in most any industry, I was actually doing research for my own selfish purposes.  We are in the middle of remodeling our house, and this toolbox is something that I was very excited to see!

Now that I’ve said that, I want to share this collapsible rolling toolbox that I came across.  I have seen a countless number of maintenance personnel who are required to take handfuls of tools to maintenance locations.  More often than not, they wind up either manually carrying the tools they need (juggling may be a more accurate word), placing them into a bag or bucket, or rolling their giant toolbox hundreds of feet around their facility.  I’ve been to one company who uses metal “milk buckets” to carry their tools in – these buckets full of tools weighed up to 40 lb!

This rolling toolbox is an excellent solution for those maintenance personnel who don’t need to bring their entire toolbox, but still need a variety of tools to perform a task.  This toolbox enables them to easily roll the box to the location, and it even elevates so that they can reach their tools while maintaining neutral postures.

If you’re looking for a way to make your maintenance person’s life a bit easier, this may be a great solution!
