Warehousing Safety Project
Some incoming materials entering the automated storage retrieval system were not compliant with the system needs and were removed to another area for correction.
The correction area was a floor space that employed two people. The actions needed were often labor intensive and the area had a very high injury rate.
The solution was to install a powered conveyor system that featured several special designed operator assist tools that was staffed by one person. The result was a 50% reduction in labor and a 0% injury rate in the audit period of one year of operation.
