Oct. 4, 2011 - PRLog -- 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 number of employee 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

The single greatest claim comes from repetitive lifting, lowering, and moving injuries costs North American businesses millions of dollars each year.   Lift'n Buddy automates those tasks, significantly reducing the potential for injuries and costly downtime.

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.
