The current focus in progressive workplaces is on improving working conditions.
And in many cases a high priority is placed on reducing the risk of manual handling injury through improved methods and systems of work.
Implementing new equipment can be an effective solution to eliminate or reduce manual effort in many instances, and can also be very effective in boosting worker morale and productivity.
An employee experiences an increased sense of worth and well being when new equipment is obtained to assist them in their workplace.
These benefits generally far outweigh the initial capital cost to purchase equipment.
The options to hire, rent to purchase, or to lease larger capital items makes it more attractive to invest in positive workplace changes.
