Ergonomics

Ergonomics in the workplace

Medicinally required. Economically reasonable.

Ergonomics and economy – two terms that only appear to be in contradiction to one another at first glance. A look into the production and assembly halls shows that there are still countless jobs to be found in our automated and optimized society, which can expect a lot from those who work there.

  • We know what is important, what needs to be considered and what moves our customers in their industry.

People have grown differently, no two bodies are the same. Work tables with a fixed height that are used standing up therefore do not contribute to improving ergonomics in production, assembly and maintenance. It is primarily diseases and damage to the spine and the musculoskeletal system that result from this. Occupational physicians have long agreed on this and are demanding that these findings be taken into account by means of appropriate height-adjustable work tables.

The use of height-adjustable work tables increases productivity and sickness-related downtimes are the exception. Ergonomic work tables are a worthwhile investment in the health of employees and the future of the company. With our products you can lift, lower, convey, turn and tilt more easily, gently and quickly. We make things right and complement the work machine – BECK products can be found where productive and safe work is important.

Example of Calculation

How do you save with Beck products.

Working with HS 300:

1 worker saves 3 minutes per hour, since almost all work processes are possible on one table.

This results in 220 working days per year a saving of 88 hours and at an hourly rate of € 30 this is an annual saving of € 2,640 per worker.

3 min./hour x 8hours/wd x 220 wd/year
= 88 hours x 30€ = 2.640€

This means that the investment costs for this ergonomic work table amortize after just 1 year.

Employer benefits:

  • Counteract demographic change

  • Reduce sick days

  • Higher productivity

  • Be an attractive employer

  • Fit employees well beyond retirement age

Advantages of working on a height-adjustable lift table or work table:

Perform any operation on the most versatile products on just one table. Thanks to a height-adjustable table – in the ideal case also on castors and thus movable – you or your employees can transport products from one place to another, adjust the height of the lifting or work table under load and process workpieces on it from the side or from above without changing your own position.
