OSHA Talks Back Injury Concerns and Lift’n Buddy Improves Safety
North Fargo, ND -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/16/2012 -- An integrated moving lifting solution built for everyday use in most warehouses, manufacturing facilities, and route-based delivery systems is the Edison Award-winning Lift’n Buddy.
“Back disorders can develop gradually as a result of micro-trauma brought about by repetitive activity over time or can be the product of a single traumatic event. Because of the slow and progressive onset of this internal injury, the condition is often ignored until the symptoms become acute, resulting in disabling injury,” according to the OSHA Technical Manual.
Light weight extruded aluminum structure allows the ergonomic handtruck to move and lift with ease. The high?performance linear motion solution includes:
- Interchangeable noses and handles
- Pneumatic tires
- Compact 10 amp, 12 volt lead acid batteries
Reducing the potential for back injuries and associated costs has a bottom-line impact according to Lift’n Buddy inventor, Aaron Lamb. He also noted that the cost of workdays missed, lost productivity, and worker’s compensation claims make the Lift’n Buddy an extremely valuable solution.
