Operators are utilized throughout our manufacturing process to build product for our customers. Operators normally work independently, however depending on the work scheduled, assignments can often change from general cleaning, painting, sorting parts, etc.
Whether working as a team or independently normal daily tasks will require the Operator to lift variable weights, bend, twist, use basic hand tools, push or pull and think safety on every task.
Operators, due to the nature of the job, continuously shift body weight, hand location and grip reducing static posture positioning.
Manual Operators require additional force than Auto Operators, due to the fact that they re shaping the material by hand. This requires the operator to apply pressure to the material utilizing upper body strength, leverage by positioning the lower body and special tools (6-9ft. In length) to assist with reducing impact to the body. Auto Operators normal functions are outlined in the task performed section below and require little to no manual shaping.
Continuously working to improve our safety culture is critical to our business model and continual growth. Therefore, we routinely review and upgrade our processes (when feasible) to reflect the latest available safety technology, including the use of manually/automatic operated hoists, cranes, carts, forklifts, tables and other devices to reduce the potential for repetitive related injuries. We also instruct our employees to use proper lifting techniques, hand/body positioning, buddy system, and other fundamental safety practices when performing tasks.
