Increasing Safety and Productivity with Ergonomic Lifting and Positioning Equipment
The physical tasks required by manual material handling (MMH) is a major contributor to musculoskeletal disorders, long-term injuries, missed work, medical treatment, and workers comp. Using ergonomic equipment can lower the physical demands of MMH work tasks.
With our current MMH workforce, ergonomics are a necessity. Today, people are staying in the workforce longer, many workers are overweight, and different body builds are more adept for heavy, repetitive lifting than others.
Ergonomic tools level out the playing field for workers. It allows all employees to work at high rates of productivity regardless of age or body shape.
What Does Ergonomics Mean?
According to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), ergonomics is the process of fitting the demands of a procedure to the capabilities of an individual in order to reduce injury or fatique.
Simply put, ergonomic equipment is scientifically engineered and designed to make MMH jobs faster, safer, and easier.
Ergonomic Lifting and Positioning Capabilities
Integrating these tools into repetitive, daily manual tasks have been proven to increase the quality of health for your employees.
- Designed to lift the product or tools to the worker
- Ability to raise or lower platforms to varied safe work heights
- Reduces lifting, bending, twisting motion
- Allows employees to work at high rates of productivity regardless of age or body shape
