Ergonomic Products reduce costs/increase productivity 01/03/2018

Ensure your workplace contains ergonomic products specifically designed for worker safety and productivity to avoid unnecessary costs.

 

Workers’ compensation claims associated with manual materials handling (MMH) represent the single largest source of claims and costs. According to an article written for US National Library of Medicine: “The analysis revealed that the lower back area and upper extremities were the body parts associated with approximately 70% of the claims. Strain was the nature of injury most frequently reported (51.3%). Lower back area strains were the most frequently reported nature of injury and body part combination.”  What may seem to be minor injuries, such as strains or sprains, can negatively impact a business’s operations and productivity.  These injuries can be prevented or reduced with preventative measures.  The following represent some of the ergonomic equipment easily integrated into the workplace

  1. Work Access Platforms:  Raising the worker, not the equipment, provides a safe solution for maximum accessibility, comfort, and efficiency.  Warner Specialty Products can customize the perfect product for every budget and application:  whether fixed or adjustable height, stationary or mobile, specialized (Helicopter/Aviation/Machine Access), to customized platforms:  http://162.144.83.190/~warnerspecialty/custom/custom-work-platforms/

  3. Lift Tables:  It is advised to keep material being handled between 30 inches and 40 inches from the floor.  Lift tables can be simple manual lifts with small weight capacity or large pneumatic/hydraulic lifts with heavier duty capacities.  Lifts can have rotating work surfaces, industrial casters for portability, or can be customized for specific applications.  A sampling of Lifts can be found on Warner Specialty Products Lift/Lift Table page:   http://162.144.83.190/~warnerspecialty/products/liftslift-tables/
  4. Ergonomic Chairs and Flooring:  Unnecessary strain, bad posture and uncomfortable positioning doesn’t just hurt productivity, it can outright injure employees.

     OSHA estimates U.S. companies spend over $20 billion annually on work-related musculoskeletal disorders that could be significantly reduced with the use of ergonomic products.  Ensure your workplace contains ergonomic products specifically designed for worker safety and productivity to avoid unnecessary costs.  Warner Specialty Products’ account representatives are available 5 days/week to perform a site visit, provide a quotation, or to make recommendations.
