The well-being of your employees at work is a critical issue for most companies: among other things, it motivates employees to perform their tasks as well as possible. In times of labor shortage, it becomes even more important to take care of your employees in order to keep them for a long time. With few employees in the job market and multiple offers, they can afford to raise their expectations. This is why working conditions are becoming primordial, and why employers are trying to differenciate themselves from each other. It is possible to improve these conditions in several ways, starting with adapting the various workstations to make them ergonomic and safe. Here’s how to improve the ergonomics of your work place to reduce the risk of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) among your teams.


did you know?

 82% of MSDs cases are caused by an excessive effort, especially during and uprising.

39% of claims with work interruptions are caused by improper handling.

66% of injuries due to improper handling affect the back region according to the CNESST.


How to improve the working environment of you teams?

Several factors can affect the well-being of your workforce and increase the risks of MSDs. By factors we mean shocks, impacts, effort and force, constraining postures, repetitions, etc. 

To reduce the effect of the factors in this equation, ergonomic desks, chairs and tables can be added to workstations. You can also rely on semi-automatic and automatic machines to help staff with their tasks. These additions can have a positive impact on your employee’s daily lives.

Start by examining your staff worksations then find out what equipment can help you meet their needs.


Employers & employees alike win!

Handlers are among the professionnals most at risk of MSD-type injuries in the workplace. The addition of equipment such as the packing table and the Robot S7 can undoubtedly help you improve the ergonomics of your workstations while increasing your efficiency! Here are some examples of the benefits of ergonomics:

  • Decreasing the risk of work-related injuries
  • Helping to reduce costs related to CNESST claims
  • Improve employee productivity
  • Contribute to employee job satisfaction
  • Competitive asset for the employer

Made in Canada, this ergonomic packing table is modular and scalable. It can support a load of up to 1,800 lbs and its height is ajustable from 29 to 36 inches. It can be equipped with several accessories to adapt to your operations:

  • Document shelves and dividers
  • Monitor arm and computer keybord tray
  • Roller bar
  • Shelf for scale or additionnal equipment
  • Box supply trolley

This ergonomic packing table brings together all the elements that make staff tasks easier and more comfortable. Workstations can also be upgraded in several ways. For example, we have equipped many of our employees with motorized desks (which go up and down) so they can work sitting or standing as they please.


The Robot S7 perfectly combines an elegant design with the reliability of its refined technology. It helps to reduce the operator’s workload by applying the stretch film efficiently and uniformly.

  • Up to 12 pre-recorded wrapping cycles
  • Electronically variable pre-stretch between 0 et 500%
  • Autonomy of 200 to 300 pallets
  • Lowest energy consumption on the market

Many times, employees want to work as quickly as possible in order to increase their productivity, but this can cause different problems. For example, they may forget to bend their knees or injure their back when lifting a heavy load. To make them more efficient without compromising their health, automatic or semi-automatic equipment such as the Robot S7 is the perfect solution! 


Many criterias have to be considered before choosing the right equipment;

  • The pace to be sustained
  • The available space in your warehouse
  • Your budget
  • The return on investment

In addition to a return on investment, you could also see a decrease in employee injuries as the machine does more of the strenuous tasks. Much less chances of having to replace your injured employees. A win-win solution for both employers and employees, especially in times of labor shortage!



Environmental redesign, staff training and the right equipment work hand in hand to improve work ergonomics and the well-being of your employees! We can help you make the changes necessary to get there!
