Manufacturing & Automotive

Manufacturing and Automotive Material handling solutions

Having worked with all of the major North American and International Automotive Manufactures, we are familiar with the ergonomic challenges that factories worldwide are facing. Maintaining a safe and productive workforce is at the forefront of our designs. We take a collaborative approach to designing, manufacturing and installing reliable and proven systems.

WSIB statistics indicate that although steadily declining, the volume of injuries in the Manufacturing and Automotive are still alarmingly high. According to a recent WSIB Annual Report, the Manufacturing and Automotive Industries routinely ranked two and three in workplace injuries over the course of the past ten years. The WSIB report, which can be found here, sheds light into a growing concern for productivity and deadlines over safety. The fact is in most cases the cost of lost time due to injury, absenteeism, insurance rates and turnover as a result of heavy, repetitive or excessive job functions, far outweighs the cost of an ergonomic solution.

In general, the expenses incurred from injuries, absenteeism, insurance premiums, and high staff turnover resulting from physically demanding or repetitive tasks exceed the cost of implementing ergonomic solutions. Our experience working with major corporations like Toyota, Honda, Chrysler, and Ford has shown us that incorporating our ergonomic products can not only boost your productivity but also significantly reduce the incidence of workplace injuries.
