Invest in the Proper Tools to Keep Employees Safe and Efficient

Deburring tool

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, more than a million people suffer back injuries at work every year. While there are lots of reasons why this might happen, lots of them are sure to stem from heavy lifting, either over a long period of time or in a freak accident. Either way, keeping employees safe has to be one of the highest priorities for companies who depend on high performance and production to thrive. Without doing so, they might find that lots of workers are suffering injuries that are not only making it difficult for them to complete their projects, but also suffer when they are not at work.

In order to prevent back injuries from happening to their employees, companies might want to provide Destaco grippers and lifting magnets, to ease the burden of heavy items. Grippers can be used to lift anything from small items to bulky larger ones, and magnets are a great tool for lifting and moving scrap metal. Though they might seem insignificant, they can be vital for the long term health of hard working individuals and every business that wants the best for their employees should invest in them.

Keeping workers healthy often has to go beyond making sure that they do not have to strain themselves too much physically. If equipment breaks down, it could not only cause a halt in production, but it could end up making a dangerous work environment. By installing the proper coupling nuts and bolts, operators will be able to give machinery the ability to rotate 70 degrees while staying secure, helping to improve flexibility and making operation easier. By also using linear bearings, that keep machines efficient by lowering friction, companies will be able to get high productivity and the proper safety out of their powerful equipment.

One of the reasons that machinery can be difficult to use, especially for a long period of time, is that big equipment will vibrate. Vibrations could not only cause difficulty when trying to complete a project, but also put extra strain on the workers trying to operate them. By installing Destaco clamps or vibration pads, managers can greatly cut down on the amount of vibration a machine produces, and give employees a more favorable work environment.
