Safety in Automation: for Ergonomics’ Sake

Cimcorp in the News: Most traditional warehouses require employees to manually lift, carry and lower heavy containers of goods. With repetitive twisting, turning and reaching, these actions put warehouse staff at constant risk of injury, as well as potential long-term damaged due to years of prolonged physical stress. For instance, such continued stress on muscles, tendons, joins and nerves can lead to chronic conditions, including repetitive stress injuries, repetitive motion injuries, musculoskeletal disorders cumulative trauma disorders and cumulative trauma injuries.

While facilities can take precaution by instructing employees on proper posture and lifting techniques, training cannot fully eliminate the impact of physical labor on the human body. According to the International Labor Organization, an estimated 340 million occupational accidents happen around the world each year, with an additional 160 million workers experiencing work-related illnesses. Additionally, studies show that number of cases of injuries in warehousing continue to be significantly higher than other industries.

At this point in time, Hermes has a well-established brand throughout Europe, but the company does not have the same level of name recognition in North America. So we decided to partner with DPR Group to let U.S. retailers know about the full range of e-commerce services Hermes offers for e-businesses and international expansion. DPR Group did a fantastic job for Hermes at the Internet Retailer Conference and Exhibition (IRCE), promoting attendance at our sessions and scheduling media interviews before and after. We’ve never had as much press coverage at any U.S. event before. I highly recommend DPR Group to foreign companies seeking to launch their products and services in U.S. markets.
