Lift n Buddy Helps Reduce Workers Compensation Claims

Lift n Buddy Helps Reduce Workers Compensation Claims

 
PRLog - Oct. 19, 2011 - The single greatest source of Workers’ Comp claims comes from repetitive lifting, lowering, and moving materials.  Injuries cost North American businesses millions of dollars each year.   Lift'n Buddy automates those tasks, significantly, reducing the potential for injuries and costly downtime.

Layoffs have swept through all industries including manufacturing, service, and retail, along with construction, office services and trade industries. The Labor Department continues to report weakness in the labor market. Recent data shows that new workers' compensation claims increase during recessionary periods even though the number of employees decrease and the total work hours decline. The cost per claim and the total system costs also increase.  Studies find that lay-offs and changes of employment increase the duration of temporary total disability, higher permanent partial disability, and increased claims for occupational disease or cumulative injuries.

Sometimes it has been called the Hand Truck of the Future or an Electric Hand Truck.  Lift’n Buddy, the leader in this segment, has had their award-winning product referred to as an aluminum Hand Truck, Electric Dollies, Multifunctional Electric Hand Truck, Hand Truck Dollies, and Mobile Hand Trucks.

Ergologistics manufactures innovative products for the health and welfare of material handling workers. Lift'n Buddy is designed and distributed by Ergologistics, LLC; manufactured in Fargo, North Dakota, the company is a proud member of MHIA (Material Handling Industry of America) as well as the National Safety Council. The company is offering complimentary shipping on telephone orders placed by October 31, 2011.
1-855-LIFT-BUD is the number to call for this limited time promotion.

Hand trucks, two-wheelers, and lifting devices, have changed little in the past hundred years. Lift'n Buddy (www.liftnbuddy.com) is the cost-effective revolutionary mobile lifting device that combines the best of a standard two-wheeler's durability and functionality, with automatic lifting and lowering capabilities. Heavy-duty hand trucks of the past, caused more than one-third of all material handling injuries, whether used in deliveries, moving product in a warehouse, or on the manufacturing plant floor.

The Lift'n Buddy has been designed with proper ergonomics and safety in mind for any person and any moving and lifting job.  These mobile lifting devices, fabricated of durable, lightweight, extruded aluminum, help companies avoid the financial exposure of employee injury, litigation, and worker’s compensation claims.  

Lift'n Buddy is ergonomically safe and environmentally friendly since the electric hand trucks require no oil, gas, hydraulic fluid, or maintenance of any kind. Completely electric and geared for life, even the battery is 100 % recyclable.
