Ergonomics in the Industrial Workplace

Businesses across all sectors are becoming increasingly aware of the importance of employee health and wellbeing. There is little doubt that the workplace of the future will place greater emphasis on solutions designed to promote ergonomics and reduce workplace injuries. AJ Products can help you create well-planned, healthy work environments completely customised to your business.

Ergonomic design has been one of the cornerstones of AJ Products’ product development since the company was established in 1975. Throughout our range we have put a focus on functionality and ergonomics to help make workplaces safer, healthier and more convenient for staff. AJ Products is uniquely situated to be able to help businesses across all sectors prioritise employee wellbeing.

Injuries caused by incorrect manual handling and lifting activities are one of the leading contributors to work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), which account for around a third of all workplace injuries [HSE, 2019]. An optimised work environment with access to ergonomic lifting equipment minimises the risks.

Cleverly-designed trolleys and material handling solutions help prevent injuries due to incorrect handling by reducing the frequency of lifting tasks and the strain placed on the body. AJ Products has years of experience providing lifting equipment to processing plants, factories and distribution hubs. We can provide innovative and tailor-made solutions to ensure compliance with HSE regulations.

Moreover, our range of sit-stand workbenches, roller conveyors and anti-fatigue matting provides a more ergonomic working position for employees on processing lines, reducing the need for additional lifting, bending or twisting: some of the most common causes of MSDs.

As well as ergonomic solutions, AJ Products is also a manufacturer of industrial storage solutions. Thanks to our range of food-grade shelving and cold store racking, we can provide food handling businesses with practical and hygienic solutions.

Thanks to our 40 plus years of experience, AJ Products can provide a complete solution from free-of-charge project planning and design suggestions to quick delivery and installation. Whether a one-off order or a large refit project, AJ Products is a one-stop shop for all your workplace needs. We are committed to making all workplaces happier and healthier places to be.
