Ergologistics President, Aaron Lamb, highlighted information from the National Safety Council in his weekly blog, “Make It a Safe Monday.” (http://liftnbuddysafety.blogspot.com/). Lamb suggested that many firms overlook records for workplace safety initiatives and programs, suggesting, “When inspected, a company's attitude towards safety is only as good as its records. My advice is to be prepared and proud when this happens, because your motivation should be to show off how excellently compliant your company is to safety standards.”
Lift’n Buddy is manufactured in the Midwest; assembled and shipped in the U.S.A. The company is a proud partner with RiverStar Incorporated, located in Winona, MN, between Minneapolis, MN and Chicago, IL. Regardless of options or quantities, the ergonomic electric hand truck can be delivered in a timely fashion.
According to the Mayo Clinic, the best ways to limit back injury in the workplace are to modify repeated tasks, avoid over lifting, limit stresses on employees back, and to lift properly. A great way to prevent excessive stress on the back and repeated lifting movements is by using a mechanical lifting device such as the Lift’n Buddy. The Lift’n Buddy provides repeated lifting cycles to limit repetitive stress on the employee and with a lift capacity up to 500 lbs. it can provide a mobile solution to lifting heavy loads of any form. Limiting back injuries in the workplace can significantly limit missed time and loss of productivity and a great solution is the Lift’n Buddy.
