Light Assembly

Light Assembly

Light assembly work may not require heavy lifting, but in many cases, it does involve reaching, bending, stooping, awkward positions, and other repetitious manual functions that can lead to cumulative trauma disorders. While a great deal of effort and attention has gone into programs designed to help reduce injuries from light lifting activities, the number one cause of lost time and insurance claims is still back injuries and other trauma related to lifting and improper work positioning. The right answer to the problem is to eliminate lifting, bending and stretching, and lifting-related activities as a regular part of any factory job.
