Bucket BuddyTradesmen often find themselves in sticky situations when they need to empty heavy buckets on their own.


Even if you’re not familiar with the vagaries of a building site it’s clear that a bucket can be tricky to manoeuvre when it’s filled with something like wet cement.


There’s a product on the market called Bucket Buddy which, as the name suggests, offers users a helping hand when attempting to empty a bucket.


It is a support mechanism which attaches to buckets via heavy duty nylon straps to take the pressure off the user.


The product features a metal front buckle fastener which latches to the top of the bucket in addition to a size adjustable belt clip and a bucket rim hook that secures the straps and fits neatly under the lid of the bucket.


As more people attempt do-it-yourself projects around the house products or systems to help consumers complete their work more quickly are in strong demand, particularly among mature age home owners.


Bucket Buddy is a great example of a simple yet effective measure designed to make work sites safer.


What other ideas could be developed that appeal to worksite safety?
