Episode #4 – Avoiding Soft Tissue Injuries in the Workplace
It’s widely recognized that we are experiencing an aging workforce in the U.S. with about 45% of manufacturing operators over the age of 45. With so many of your employees more prone to soft tissue injury, it’s imperative that you do all you can to keep workers safe. Providing proper safety training, keeping up on regular equipment maintenance, and setting up routines and expectations that do not overexert your workers are good places to start.
In this episode of the SafeRack podcast, hosts Kenny Rogers and Ray Evans discuss how employers can avoid the most common workplace injury, soft tissue damage to muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Our Vertical Market Specialists cover slips, trips, and falls which are often the culprit, especially in the loading industry. Topics discussed include proper balancing of loading arms, regular maintenance and safety training, and the benefits of electric, pneumatic, and hydraulic assist gangways to keep workers safe and avoid unnecessary repetitive knee, elbow, wrist, and back injuries at work
