When manufacturing staff work with small, handheld materials, industrial Tilt Tables can drastically reduce reaching over the course of the shift. That may not sound like much of an intervention, but considering that repetitive motions like bending and reaching increase the risk of developing a musculoskeletal disorder, it's often worthwhile for manufacturers to invest in Tilt Tables for their employees.
