Ergonomic Torque Arm Prevent Side Load & Cross Threading
The EZ-Glider torque arms are designed to improve production and quality control during the assembly process. The ergonomic torque arm prevents side load and cross threading, by securely clasping the electric screwdriver or pneumatic screwdriver and keeping the tool in a perpendicular alignment. The EZ-Glider helps remove the operators influence in the assembly process and strengthens quality control. The ergonomic design of the EZ-Glider torque arms reduces RMI (repetitive motion injury) and CTS (carpal tunnel syndrome). The effortless handling of the torque arm provides comfortable tool operation and increased production.
An ergonomic mindset helps ensure safer conditions
Besides the proper selection of ergonomically correct tools and workstations, manufactures should adopt enterprise wide programs that increase the awareness of ergonomics within administrative offices as well as on the production floor.
A successful ergonomic system incorporates employee participation that includes discussion across all levels and directions of an organization. It’s recommended to avoid the one-size-fits-all approach. Every ergonomic concern requires its own evaluation, ideally performed by a person competent in such issues. When indicated, control measures should be designed to eliminate ergonomic stresses specific to the results of the evaluation. Finally, effective follow-up mechanisms must be provided.
- Form a permanent safety committee
- Perform a job safety analysis for every job
- Perform routine inspections, even if no hazards have been reported
- Immediately correct any deficiencies; and conduct an accident investigation for each incident, even “near misses.”
