Press release date: December 18, 2013

A new white paper from METTLER TOLEDO explains how ergonomically designed floor scales can reduce injuries in an industry fraught with potential risks on the production floor. Choosing the right floor scale is the first step to reduce operator injury risk, but it doesn't stop there. Scales also must be installed and placed properly so that operators can easily and comfortably access them for maximum efficiency. Employee injuries account for lost productivity and revenue, as well as potential law suits.

Safety and maintenance personnel can help ensure ergonomic and safe use of floor scales on the production floor. The new white paper offers them considerations for installing floor scales and using personal protective equipment effectively; explains new floor-scale features that impact employee safety; shares how terminals and displays should be placed for comfort and safety; and finally, how floor-scales should be maintained for optimum efficiency in food production areas.

Upon reading this white paper, readers should have a basic understanding of available floor-scale models, how to choose the right one to enhance ergonomics in their operations and how to prepare and install a floor scale to reduce injury risk.
