When dealing with large, heavy products that require comparably large, heavy equipment, industrial bolting can become a safety issue with the potential for costly consequences. HYTORC eliminates pinch points that are the cause of common hand and finger injuries.
Whereas 27% of all workplace injuries are related to the hands and fingers in the common workplace, in heavy industry the figures rise. For example, the International Association of Drilling Contractors has reported that 43% of all oil and gas industry injuries occur to workers' hands and fingers.
From broken bones to mutilating, crushing and debilitating injuries, ensuing investigations can cause a factory or refinery to cease production for up to an entire year.White Papers
One hand injury can cost between $50,000 and $250,000 in losses, not including a resulting lawsuit.
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that the average hand injury claim has now exceeded $6,000, with each lost time workers' compensation claim reaching nearly $7,500.
Hand injury investigations can shut a factory or refinery down for up to an entire year, easily resulting in the loss of millions of dollars in revenue.
