Increased competition and rising health care costs have prompted more companies to look for ways to improve worker productivity and reduce job-related injuries stemming from repetitive work tasks. According to OSHA, cumulative trauma disorders like carpal tunnel syndrome and tendonitis account for more than 16 million lost work days in the U.S. each year, at a cost of over $40 billion.
Rexroth workstations are engineered to reduce hand and arm movements, promote correct body posture and reduce physical stress points. Work surfaces and footrests are adjustable to fit varying frame sizes. Parts bins and trays are specially designed to minimize hand motions and speed piecepart changeover. These seemingly small design differences add up to significant increases in worker productivity, morale, and product quality. They also contribute to decreases in worker's compensation claims, absenteeism and turnover.
Rexroth workstations and accessories have been designed and developed to provide a natural integration between worker, environment and task. All components have been extensively tested and refined in continuous time and motion studies for more than 15 years. These documented studies give you the assurance that Rexroth workstations are proven ergonomic solutions.
