Your employees work hard every day. If your workers sit, stand, lift, bend or twist for extended periods, it’s only a matter of time before they begin to complain about back pain, neck pain or tired feet and legs. When the source of that pain isn’t addressed it can lead to an increase in workers compensation claims, sick leave, accidents, or further injury. Plus, all those aches and pains greatly impact worker productivity, hitting you square in the wallet.
Fortunately, the right ergonomic solutions can help.
Ergonomics improve worker safety, productivity and satisfaction. Ergonomic products are available in a variety of options that work best for you. For routine lifting or other activities that require an employee to move objects from one area to another, back supports can help workers support the muscles of the back. Knee pads or kneeling pads are useful for applications that require extended periods of kneeling such as in tile or grout work. Wrist, hand and elbow supports provide protection against overextension and can offer relief from aching joints due to repetitive tasks.
If you’re looking to improve worker safety, health and productivity, invest in proper ergonomic support. Empire Safety & Supply can help you choose the options that work best for you and your team. We carry a variety of products from trusted names like Ergodyne®, Allegro® and OccuNomix.
