Housekeepers Say Luxury Beds a Pain
 

On October 30, 2007, California's Division of Occupational Safety and Health cited the Los Angeles Airport Hilton Hotel for violating repetitive motion injury standards and other hazards.

The $14,425 fine marked the first such penalty assessed against the U.S. hotel industry for repetitive motion injuries. It may not be the last.

John Wilhelm, president of the hospitality division of the hospitality workers union UNITE HERE considers the citation as a "wake up call" and hopes it will prompt the hospitality industry to adopt remedies to reduce back and shoulder injuries among the the industry's mostly female housekeepers.

For centuries, people have made beds pretty much the same way: bending, stooping, lifting, pushing, and pulling. This seemingly simple task is the focal point of a serious problem for people who make beds for a living in the hospitality, assisted living and and health care industries.

Housekeepers have to bend over to lift mattresses and frequently twist their backs while tucking in up to three sheets per bed. A housekeeper who spends 10 to 12 minutes per bed and makes 25 beds a day, some of which are only 14 inches off the floor, can spend up to five hours lifting mattresses 150 to 200 times every day!

No longer.

BedJack - Frame Down

The BedJack is an innovative, patented bed lifting system that incorporates a durable, high-torque electric motor and state-of-the-art electronics in a rugged, lightweight aluminum bed frame that can effortlessly lift up to 400 lbs in addition to the weight of the mattress and box spring.

At the push of a button, the remote-controlled BedJack moves the entire bed away from the wall on heavy-duty wheels and raises the entire bed 24 inches to a comfortable height where a housekeeper can literally make the bed standing up!

BedJack - Frame Up

In addition, a rectangular bed cover rack extends from the foot of the bed, where the housekeeper can rest the bed covers and pillows. Bed covers and sheets stay off the floor, helping to avoid back strain and extra steps in the room when changing linens and making the bed.

"Let BedJack do the Heavy Lifting, Not Your Staff"

BedJack is the ultimate way to make a bed. It dramatically reduces the risk of lower back injuries by eliminating most of the strain and awkward motion needed to change a bed and enables anyone to look like a bed-making wizard.

Integrate the BedJack into your facility and you will quickly learn that it is not a safety feature, like putting on a seatbelt;  it is how you make beds!
