Retail Grocery Stores: Meat and Deli Solutions Mobile App

Occupational safety is important for every business. Grocery store meat, deli, seafood and cheese departments face a unique set of work-related injury risks. Start or improve your grocery industry ergonomics program with these principals, accessible as a mobile app on your smartphone or tablet.

Injury prevention begins with training your employees to use ergonomic risk prevention techniques and designing your retail grocery store to make that easy. This mobile app describes meat and deli ergonomic principles on safe work practices employees can follow to reduce their risk of injury. Review ergonomic risk factor topics including repetitive motions, heavy lifting, safe lifting, ergonomic hazards, awkward postures, carpal tunnel musculoskeletal disorder and anti-fatigue mats.

Knowledge is power for grocery industry injury prevention. Save, share and send this information with the GoCanvas Cloud.
