If you’re running a factory, manufacturing facility, or other industrial operation, you know that unanticipated expenses can be devastating. A workplace injury doesn’t just affect your immediate bottom line, it affects employee morale, productivity, and ongoing insurance costs. They can slow your production rates, causing delayed shipments and – worst of all – frustrated customers. OSHA estimates that over $1 billion is spent every week on employees who have been injured on the job. Because of this, it is critical that you take precautions to ensure the safety of your employees. In today’s post, we’re going to discuss how hydraulic manipulators can help you reduce the frequency of injuries – particularly those caused by repetitive strain – and how they can help you maintain your profitability.
Moving your products throughout your facility can be hazardous, especially if it’s being done improperly. Repeatedly moving, pitching, rolling, sliding, and maneuvering heavy products can wear your employees down, causing injuries from stress and strain. With a hydraulic manipulator, you can alleviate this burden, reducing the amount of work it takes to get the job done.

By taking steps to prevent workplace injuries, you’re working to prevent unexpected downtime and training for replacement employees. A hydraulic manipulator ensures that your employees are safe and secure. This, in turn, reduces workers’ compensation claims and preserves your uptime.
