Ergonomics for the workplace is defined as the science of designing a workplace environment that is developed strategically focusing on the abilities and limitation of a worker.  A poorly laid out work space can leads to a more fatigued, frustrated and potentially hurt workforce.

The goal of ergonomics in the work place is to reduce a workers exposure to hazards. That is, any physical factor within a work environment that could harm a worker’s body. This is more than physical obstacles and high weight lifting, it also includes working in uncomfortable body positions, repetitive use of force on joints and excessive repetition of body movements.

There are many advantages to implementing ergonomic solutions in the work place. Not only does it prevent injuries and increase productivity, it increases employee comfort, efficiency and makes the work place more safe for all.

Topper Industrial is a manufacturer of material handling equipment. Topper designs all products with ergonomics in mind. There is a constant focus when designing custom solutions that builds on ease of use and best positioning of material to get the job done. Safety in the work place is a high priority when creating material handling equipment, especially when considering human interaction with that equipment.

One Topper product that encompasses the essence of ergonomics is the Tilt Carts. Topper Industrial’s tilt carts come equipped with a patented adjustable closed loop hydraulic cylinder that controls the energy of the load as it is tilted in the industrial tilt cart. It provides for a safe and controlled tilt movement in a full to empty application.

The degree of the tilt on a cart is also, designed and designated by the ergonomic picking heights needed line side. Line side workers need to reach parts placed vertically in a container without exceeding ergonomic limits for reaching and bending.

Topper Industrial Tilt Carts come in 30, 45 and 60 degrees.
