1,000,000 Workers in the United States Will Suffer a Back Injury This Year

"Zero Defects" is often touted as the ultimate goal for most manufacturers.  As you know defects in manufacturing and distribution can cost companies millions of dollars when products are returned and repairs are needed.  Ironically most companies will overlook the costs related to back injuries.  Worker's compensation claims, sick leave, and litigation fees will significantly impact an organization's bottom line.  Worst of all, injuries lead to low employee morale and leave the companies with awful reputations.  Employers will save money by providing workers with the proper tools, effective control programs, and ergonomically design tasks; we call this "Zero Injury" policy.  It's time for you to talk with your customers about investing in proper lifting equipment.

Safety Tip of the Day:

Eliminate repetitive lifting.  Place items that you typically bend over to reach at a better height to decrease the risk of injury.

Beat the Heat

Once again it's that time of year when temperatures routinely reach into the triple digits.  For those that have to work outside a Lift'n Buddy can significantly reduce the amount of effort needed for day to day activities. Keep a close eye out for symptoms of heat stroke and remember to drink plenty of water, find occasional shade, and let Lift'n Buddy help you with the heavy lifting.
