Using Industrial Manipulators to Prevent Employee Injuries


According to OSHA, it is estimated that employers pay almost $1 billion per week for direct workers’ compensation costs due to workplace injuries. These costs cover compensation packages, medical expenses and legal costs. Beyond these direct costs, there’s a host of indirect costs such as hiring replacements, decreased productivity, equipment repairs and investigative costs. With these staggering figures, it’s no surprise that employers are constantly vigilant, on the lookout for an effective way to reduce costs and, more importantly, protect their employees.

Industrial manipulators increase safety

At TDA Buddy, our industrial manipulators are designed to help your employees safely and efficiently move material and equipment. From pallet loading and line transferring to rotating and rolling equipment, our machines can reduce instances of workplace injury by improving operator ergonomics and increasing safety. With the need to manually lift, position and set heavy parts eliminated, your employees will be more confident in the performance of their duties and you can rest easy knowing that you’ve safeguarded their well-being.

TDA Buddy manipulators can reduce stress and strain

As our manipulators making heavy parts virtually weightless, occurrences of repetitive strain injury can be reduced or eliminated. Repetitive strain injury, or RSI, is caused by repeated tasks, forceful exertions, mechanical compression, vibrations and sustained or awkward positions. TDA Buddy’s industrial manipulators are ergonomically designed to enhance user comfort, meaning that they are created with the user’s position and movements in mind.

At TDA Buddy, we’ve been building manipulator systems since 1985.
