Do you know how much an injury costs your organization? These direct and indirect costs might be wage and productivity losses, medical expenses, administrative expenses, motor vehicle damage, employers’ uninsured costs, or fire losses. And according to the 2018 Injury Facts put out by the National Safety Council (NSC), the cost per medically consulted workplace injury in 2018 was $41,000. It’s clear safety must be a priority for all organizations, and especially those with higher risks in manufacturing and related industries. Below, we’ll take a look at a few of the cost-effective ergonomic and safety products Axiom can provide to help keep your workers safe.

Lifting, bending, and stretching every day while working can lead to injury. The idea behind ergonomic equipment is to reduce the risk of injuries occurring and to improve the overall quality of life of workers. This can be achieved through various products and solutions in the warehouse.

Workstations and Workbenches — Work centers designed to create a safe work environment by being the perfect height for your workers. Our workstations can also come in numerous layouts and with a variety of accessories to further enhance accessibility and ease of use.

Lift Tables and Platforms — A cost effective solution to excessive lifting, bending, and stretching, lift tables and platforms are an easy way to improve ergonomics in the warehouse and protect your workers from unnecessary injury.

Safety Solutions

Axiom’s safety products are pretty straightforward—they’re designed to keep everyone in your building safe from work-related injuries. Let’s take a look at some of these offerings.

Guard Rail and Safety Gates — Have pallet rack in an area where there’s heavy forklift traffic? You should have guard rail or another barrier there to protect it. Rack damage can be expensive, especially if there’s damage to valuable product. We can help prevent this.

Separation and Wire Partitions — Need to follow safe distancing protocols, or simply keep people out of certain areas of your facility? Our separation and wire partitions can come in almost any configuration and fit in many different environments.

Loading Dock Equipment — Another cost-effective option, dock levelers and other loading dock equipment helps ensure your loading area is safe and able to work with just about any trailer without damaging product.
