Musculoskeletal injuries are among the most common and costly causes of work-related injury in almost any industry. In order to protect workers, many companies have tried implementing automation techniques which reduce worker fatigue while still getting the job done. Muscle aches or repetitive motion from overuse can lead to musculoskeletal disorders such as carpal tunnel syndrome or tendonitis that result in lost time on the job.
Automation is one way employers try to prevent these debilitating issues by reducing damage caused by prolonged periods at a computer desk with manual tasks performed repeatedly throughout each shift; automated equipment also encourages more ergonomically correct posture during use when compared those who perform similar duties without mechanization assistance due for example, heavy lifting and carrying.
There are many dangerous jobs in the world, but working as a mechanic or manufacturing worker can be some of the most hazardous. The long hours and intense labor take an immense toll on your body, which is especially difficult with all of society’s advances in technology. Employers should use automation at every turn to eliminate manual work so employees last longer while building high quality products without physical pain.
Risk of injury increases when ergonomic risks are not identified and addressed. For example, safety management software can help identify and evaluate these risk factors in a workplace to reduce the likelihood of accidents happening again which helps save time as well as money on workers compensation claims that will inevitably happen if no change is made.
