Better safety is great, but more technology can mean less mobility and comfort and added weight on your shoulders, leaving you feeling sore, fatigued and less productive by the end of the workday.
Heavy equipment that doesn't have ergonomic support can, over time, cause injuries from strain, repetitious movement, or fatigue.

It also identifies what you should look for in a safety harness that will provide the ergonomic support and comfort you need to be productive and feel good at the end of the day.
