We have all done it, we go to lift something and end up biting more than we can chew, leading to a damaged product…or even worse damaging ourselves. Work place injuries are more common than you think, especially in the copier world. Understaffed companies with only 1 or 2 delivery personnel know this all too well as does Salesmaker Carts.
Directly from OSHA – “In addition to their social costs, workplace injuries and illnesses have a major impact on an employer’s bottom line. It has been estimated that US employers pay almost $1 billion per week for direct workers’ compensation costs alone. The costs of workplace injuries and illnesses include direct and indirect costs. Direct costs include workers’ compensation payments, medical expenses, and costs for legal services. Examples of indirect costs include training replacement employees, accident investigation and implementation of corrective measures, lost productivity, repairs of damaged equipment and property, and costs associated with lower employee morale and absenteeism” so we ask, why risk it? When there are easy solutions.
