Safety Operations of FIBC Bulk Bags | Jumbo Bags

You’ve got various types of Flexible Intermediate Bulk Containers (FIBCs) and hundreds of industries in which they are used, but whatever the shape and size of these bulk bags, they all need to be handled with care, following safety precautions. Full bags are very heavy (some weighing up to 2500 kilograms!) and when not handled with care, can result in an unsafe work environment.

Here are some guidelines to follow when lifting bulk bags.

Always follow these guidelines
