Let’s see how they fixed that job!

Solution Description:
The company designed a manual cart to raise the container off the floor and tilt it towards the worker to allow easy access to the parts. This “fix” improved the worker’s body posture and reduced strain on the lower back.

Be sure to come back next week for the next round of  “How’d They Fix That?”
