While here at BEB we focus mostly on the equipment side of material handling safety, we know that there are a lot of other areas of safety that impact you facilities and employees on a daily basis. Today, we are going to talk about work-related musculoskeletal injuries resulting from over exertion and repetitive movements and what can be done to address and help prevent them.
It’s true, these types of injuries don’t seem to get as much press as the more horrific injuries seen when man (or woman) meetings equipment or machines. However, we are seeing a little more than one in every five claims during research conducted by the SHARP Program, leading one to conclude these types of injuries actually DO need some attention.
