Proludic is constantly aiming to improve health and safety at work for its employees. The company aims to achieve the “zero accident rate”, at the heart of all the prevention initiatives taken for the benefit of our employees.
The most recent actions implemented by the Quality/Health/Safety/Environment department (QHSE) prove this, as they aim to support and relieve the jobs undertaken by our machine-operators in charge of preparing orders.
After a one-month test, Proludic invested in an exoskeleton, a somewhat strange armature that seems straight out of a science fiction movie, and allows machine operators to benefit from an additional lifting force equivalent to 25 kg.
Thanks to arms equipped with an adjustable spring, this device can be adjusted in a few seconds to adapt the capacity and manipulate loads as if they only weighed a few grams. The cover stabilises and protects the user’s spine.
Lifting, moving and putting down steel and Robinia posts, wooden panels and other heavy structures, have now become easy tasks to perform.
The strength is multiplied, the movement is smooth, the correct posture is immediately adopted, and the weariness due to consistently repeating the same movements is greatly reduced. Our employees appreciate this equipment which helps them in their daily work and protects their health.
Proludic is the first company in the Centre Val de Loire region to equip its employees with an exoskeleton.
Manufactured by the company Exhauss and commercialised by Gobio Robot, this influential structure will be the first of many to come. Proludic is convinced that this innovation has a beneficial impact on employee health and safety; and is already testing some other devices, such as posture harnesses.
