Helping you to improve ergonomics and employee well-being

Since the early 1970’s, Scaglia Indeva has been at the forefront of the development of advanced material handling solutions that are proven to improve safety and ergonomics for those who carry out manual handling tasks.

As a company, we are committed to improving ergonomics and employee well-being for all industrial sectors, and are at the forefront of the development of equipment* that reduces – and in many cases eliminates – injury through manual material handling.

Can you afford to lose valuable members of staff for 17.6 working days?

The latest HSE statistics on Work-related Musculoskeletal Disorders (WRMSDs) show that in 2017, although WRMSDs have reduced from previous years, they still account for 8.9 million working days lost in the UK alone! With 507,000 reported cases over the year, that’s a whopping 17.6 days lost per incident. No company can afford to lose staff for that length of time, and no employee wants to be off work for that length of time.

It is well known that manual material handling causes stresses and strains on the back, neck and upper limbs. The HSE statistics show that:

  • 44% of working days that were lost were due to work-related upper limb disorders;
  • 36% of working days lost were due to back disorders; and
  • 20% of working days lost were due to work-related lower limb disorders.
