Importance Of Choosing The Right Caster For Ergonomic Success
Thus, the caster wheels on the cart may be the improper solution for the application. Consequently, it's beneficial to learn the importance of choosing the right caster wheel for ergonomic success.
In a previous post, we’ve learned the costs associated with poor ergonomic applications. There’s a cost of:
- Medical expenses
- Irreversible injuries
- Lost production time
- Turnover and new employee training
Total Cost of Ownership must factor in when choosing caster solutions for an application. As a result, high-quality products perform better and last longer. This results in less downtime, fewer production interruptions, and maximized production capacity.
