CUSTOM PACKAGING WORKSTATIONS
We don’t think much about it, but every day our bodies go through a range of repetitive movements. These repetitive tasks can lead to a strain on our bodies if we don’t have the right supportive equipment while we’re busy.
Whether it’s the right workstation or chair, basically any piece of equipment that helps us work in more comfort can make a massive difference to our work day.
On the negative side, if we don’t have the right equipment or tools, these repetitive movements can do a lot of harm. This can affect comfort, decrease productivity, and possibly even cause physical damage. When we’re working, we need the right tools to ensure that we can work at our best.
It would seem that we have a lot of work to do in this area in the US. In 2017 alone, the Department of Labor reported that there were close to 3 million workplace illnesses or injuries as reported by employees in the private sector.
It’s interesting to note that these injuries were all non-fatal; however, they included many musculoskeletal disorders related to repetitive work. Conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, and De Quervain’s Disease all fall under this category.
The cost to business is high regarding lost productivity, insurance, medical bills, staff turnover, and lower employee morale. It’s hard to get enthusiastic about a day’s work when your body is aching, after all.
Make Productivity and Safety a Priority
If your employees need to perform repetitive movements every day while working, like bending over, lifting goods, or even just pulling things along, they must have the right equipment. That’s where a custom-built station comes in handy.
Standard workstations are a bit cheaper up front, but they’re meant as a one-size-fits-all solution. They’re usually just slapped together with little thought towards creating an ergonomic design. If you’ve got someone performing a specialist function that involves a lot of repetition, this is a recipe for disaster.
Employees will get fatigued faster than they should, and production will slow down as a result. It’s quite simple – if you want optimal productivity out of your employees, you need to provide them with the right tools for the job, which means starting with the proper workstation.
