Standish, MI -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/22/2016 -- Magline's ergonomic material handling equipment helps prevent costly injuries. Equipment with poor ergonomic design can lead to expensive and avoidable employee injuries. Magline focuses on ergonomics in all products, working to minimize the factors that cause injury so employees can work more productively and consistently.
The costs of poor ergonomics go far beyond hospital and physical therapy fees for injuries, although those bills are considerable enough. A damaged wrist can cost $6,500 to treat, while surgery for a back injury can run almost $60,000. The indirect price of injuries can truly be staggering: legal fees, clerical time processing injury claims, and time and money spent finding and training replacement workers can together run up to 35 times as high as the direct treatment costs. The $6,500 price tag to treat an injured wrist can rise to over $227,000 when indirect costs are considered.
At Magline careful attention to ergonomics now can save companies and personnel large amounts of money and time. That is why Magline makes ergonomic design a priority. Some Magline designs are obviously focused on ergonomics, such as the CooLift with hydraulic lifting to reduce force on users' shoulders and backs. Magline's focus on reducing strain on users also is evident in smaller details of products including hand truck grips that are carefully designed to fit all hand sizes and reduce strain on operators' fingers and wrists.
