Three steps to an ergonomically safe workplace
According to the Screen Printing and Graphics Imaging Association (SGIA),
ergonomic injuries account for a large portion of workers’ compensation claims
in the printing industry. Here are three tips to make sure you are running an
ergonomically correct shop.
Conduct an evaluation. Take a good hard look at your
production activities, particularly those tasks involving frequent, constant
and/or awkward motions.
Make sure your employees are aware of your ergonomic concerns. Awareness is half
proactive. Once you and your employees have identified problem areas,
take corrective action — before employees are injured.
