Back support belts can help relieve lower back pain among workers who perform regular heavy lifting or are required to bend down frequently. Lower back pain is one of the most commonly reported medical complaints, among conditions like cold or flu symptoms and an upset stomach.
It is therefore important that every worker who suffers from lower back pain take steps to protect their spine and avoid injury. Strategies can include physical therapy, core training or visiting a chiropractor, depending on the nature of your pain or injury. Some employees, particularly those who work in warehouses, are required to wear back support belts. But, even workers who aren't mandated can benefit from wearing a lumbar support belt if they have experienced difficulties on the job. Read More(+)
Safety Company offers a variety of back support belts, including those with and without suspenders, to encourage proper posture and prevent lower back pain and injury.
Knee and elbow pads
Knees and elbows can easily be strained or injured in certain fields of work. If you're often required to kneel, whether to work on equipment close to the ground or to place warehouse items on lower shelves, knee pads can make these tasks more comfortable. They also protect this sensitive area from blows, a common occurrence in certain environments.
Elbow pads offer similar protection for those working in tight spaces or who must carry large objects as part of their job responsibilities.
Wrist guards can help workers maintain proper positioning of their wrists when working in tight spaces, carrying goods or even typing at a computer. They also prevent wrist overextension, protecting this fragile joint from strain or other injury. In the event of a forward fall, wrist guards transfer some of the impact away from the heel of the hand, one of the most potentially injurious ways to fall.
