Driving Jobsite Safety and Productivity
Milwaukee Tool is always looking for ways to help trade professionals get their work done faster and more efficiently, while keeping them safe. A prime example of this is the company’s leadership in cordless technology and their mission to eliminate cords on the jobsite. The company continues to tackle the top safety issues in the industry. This includes (but is not limited to):
Milwaukee(R) is committed to providing safe and versatile silica dust management solutions that help address the OSHA regulation on respirable crystalline silica dust (29 CFR 1926.1153). The company's dust management solutions are focused on enhancing productivity.
Gas equipment present on today’s jobsite results in workers becoming twice as likely to develop respiratory diseases due to exposure and inhalation of gas fumes and emissions. Milwaukee provides users with cordless solutions that eliminate exposures associated with gas equipment. These solutions deliver upon the performance, run-time and durability demanded by users without the hazards associated with emissions, noise vibrations and frustrations of gas maintenance.
Vibration & Noise
Hand-arm vibration syndrome (HAVS) and noise-induced hearing loss continue to affect workers across various jobsites due to repeated exposure. However, cordless solutions decrease noise or vibration to limit the exposure to the user when the tool is in application.
To combat musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), Milwaukee solutions ensure ergonomics is a key aspect of the product design process. Even when technology is not utilized, ergonomics is still one of the key aspects of product design, from comfort in the handle of a drill to innovating how drain cleaning professionals transport heavy equipment.
Milwaukee uses electromyography, or EMG, to measure muscle effort during a tool’s use. With the ability to measure up to 108 unique muscle groups throughout the body, the use of EMG technology allows the company to produce tools that reduce peak muscle efforts and fatigue helps workers age and retire with greater strength and health.
Personal Protective Equipment
PPE is critical on jobsites, but a lack of innovative offerings has led many users to modify their jobsite protection to maximize productivity at the expense of safety. Milwaukee has disrupted this space with solutions designed for the challenges workers face every day and offers features that have been demanded for years such as s hard hats with the versatility to support critical accessories, anti-fog and anti-scratch safety glasses, safety vests with increased functionality, and much more.
