It shouldn’t come as a surprise that workers’ compensation claims have the potential to severely handicap your profits. OSHA estimates that, on average, companies pay $1 billion every single week due to injuries sustained by their employees. This figure, while intimidating, only represents half of the equation, as well. Coupled with the cost of hiring replacements, training new staff, repairing equipment and – of course – the cost of investigating workers’ comp claims, workplace injuries don’t just threaten to handicap your business… they can often gravely cripple your ability to operate at an efficient, profitable level.
Increase safety, prevent injury
Moving large, heavy and awkward objects is dangerous if done improperly. Affording your employees the opportunity to use an industrial manipulator is a great way to increase operator safety. As they no longer need to manually lift and position heavy parts, the danger that their job poses is drastically reduced. In addition to this, proper training ensures that they aren’t just safer, they can accomplish more in less time and, as a result, contribute to a more streamlined and profitable operation!
Limit the effects of stressful conditions
Repetitive stress and strain is one of the biggest problems in the manufacturing industry. The physical stress caused by repeatedly lifting, positioning and placing heavy parts can take its toll on your employees. By utilizing a pneumatic or hydraulic manipulator, however, you can greatly slow the accumulation of this stress and, in the long run, ensure that your employees stay healthy and capable.
