How to Reduce Workplace Injuries with Ergonomic Carts

The National Safety Council found that the total cost of work injuries totaled $161.5 billion in one year. [1] If you are using plastic utility carts that are not ergonomic, you could negatively impact your bottom line. Nonfatal injuries are costly, with a per-person average of approximately 11 lost workdays and a value of $1,560 per year in the United States. [2]

Many movements on the job have the potential for causing injuries, including:

  • Awkward postures, such as bending & twisting
  • Repetitive motions, including reaching, lifting, & carrying
  • Forceful exertions, like pushing or lifting heavy loads
