A lifting solution is a piece of machinery that facilitates lifting making it easier and more ergonomic by decreasing the need for repetitive motions of your employees such as bending, reaching and carrying. The excessive stress on muscles, discs and vertebrae caused by those activities may lead to musculoskeletal disorder (MSD). According to The University of North Carolina research on workplace safety, it is a result of repeated micro trauma caused to specific body parts.
Usually a traumatic injury occurs when a body is exposed to a car accident or by playing sports over longer period of time. The same result may also be a consequence of heavy lifting over an extended period. It may take weeks, months or years to develop but it certainly can be avoided with a use of a lifting solution.
