Maximising Productivity with Height Adjustable Prep Tables in Food Processing

The emphasis on ergonomics across Australian workplaces, including the food processing industry, has intensified in response to alarming national statistics on workplace injuries. Safe Work Australia reports indicate that MSDs are the leading cause of workers’ compensation claims in Australia, accounting for more than half of all claims. Specifically, work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WMSDs) accounted for 55% of all serious workers compensation claims in 2015–16.


This landscape of ergonomic-related injuries and MSDs in the Australian workforce underscores the need for ergonomic solutions. Innovations such as height adjustable prep tables are becoming increasingly vital in reducing these risks and boosting operational efficiency. These are not just reactions to a health issue but proactive measures to create healthier, more productive work environments in the food processing industry.


The Ergonomic Imperative in Food Processing

Emery Industries’ height adjustable prep tables represent a pivotal response to these ergonomic challenges. Traditional, fixed-height workstations in food processing often lead to unnatural postures and increased strain, contributing to the high incidence of MSDs. Height adjustable prep stations address these issues by offering customizable workspaces that conform to the varying physical needs of employees, thereby promoting better posture and reducing the risk of injuries.
