PPE: Head to Toe Protection

shutterstock_182837804By understanding the strength and movement capabilities, and the physical limits of employees on the shop floor, forward-thinking organizations can implement safety and ergonomic solutions that help reduce employee exposure to work-related risks.

This includes providing workers with Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), modifying existing equipment, improving work practices, and implementing new tools and devices that support both the worker and product throughput. Providing workers with ergonomics increases business profits through reduced injuries, improved product quality, reduced turnover and increased worker job satisfaction and engagement.
