Design Found in Lift n Buddy works for NIOSHP

National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health Prevention Through Design Found in Lift’n Buddy

 
PRLog - Oct. 7, 2011 - NIOSH, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health is part of the CDC; it provides many resources on back injury prevention. Prevention through Design (PtD) is one of the best ways to prevent and control occupational injuries, illnesses, and fatalities.  The idea is to "design out" or minimize hazards and risks early in the design process. NIOSH is leading a national initiative called Prevention through Design (PtD) to promote this concept and highlight its importance in all business decisions.

The concept of PtD can be defined as addressing occupational safety and health needs in the design process to prevent or minimize the work-related hazards and risks associated with the construction, manufacture, use, maintenance, and disposal of facilities, materials, and equipment.

A growing number of business leaders are recognizing PtD as a cost-effective means to enhance occupational safety and health. Many U.S. companies openly support PtD concepts and have developed management practices to implement them.

While no approach has been found for totally eliminating back injuries caused by lifting, it is felt that a substantial portion can be prevented by an effective control program and ergonomic design of work tasks. Lift’n Buddy is the epitome of PtD, helping workers to safely perform lifting tasks. Avoiding just one work-related injury claim would offset the costs of Lift’n Buddy.
