Description

In response to questions from the union council of the "Quai 2" residence in Bordeaux about the arduous nature of the work of one of its employees, the cleaning company Vidimus Sud-Ouest, with the support of Carsat Aquitaine, has acquired a push tractor that makes it easier and safer to remove waste containers. The push tractor acquired by Vidimus enables its employee to pull up trains of three to four containers with one hand along slopes of 10%.

Interpellée par le conseil syndical de la résidence « Quai 2 » à Bordeaux sur la pénibilité du travail de l’un de ses salariés, la société de nettoyage Vidimus Sud-Ouest, soutenue par la Carsat Aquitaine, a fait l’acquisition d’un tracteur-pousseur qui facilite et sécurise la sortie des conteneurs à déchets. Le tracteur-pousseur acquis par Vidimus permet à son employé de remonter d’une seule main des trains de trois à quatre conteneurs le long de pentes à 10 %.
