Re-Grip Inc. has created the ultimate solution to minimize safety risk and have a positive financial impact
Online PR News – 21-February-2013 – Who would have thought that replacing a grip could have such a big impact on a companys bottom line? Repetitive motion, such as grasping tools, scanning groceries, and typing, resulted in the longest absences from work among the leading events and exposures in 2011a median of 23 days (Source: Bureau of Labor Statistics). Add that to the impact of minor hand injures and we are talking about hundreds of millions of dollars that can potentially be minimized by proper hand grips. Enter Re-Gripdata has shown that applying Re-Grip to various handles and levers can help minimize risk and even have a positive impact on worker’s compensation claims. This is especially the case where these handles and levers are old, worn out, or have jagged edges that can cause injury. Items with molded hard grips on levers, presses, hand trucks, and various tools can have sharp edges or splinters and have the potential to cause injury. While Re-Grip can help facilitate in minimizing these injuries, it also adds comfort and ergonomics to assist with preventing repetitive motion disorders. Re-Grip is simply one solution that companies cant overlook. It is not every day that a product hits the shelves that can not only help employees be more comfortable and safe, but can actually have a positive effect on a companys bottom line. That to me sounds like a win, win.
What is Re-Grip you might ask? Re-Grip is a universal solution to applying a new handle grip. Significantly improving the few options on the market, Re-Grip uses strong, durable elastic material to provide mechanical and environmental protection while enhancing comfort for the user. It is ergonomic and reduces muscle fatigue while having non-slip properties for better control and safety.
Replacement grips are usually specific to a particular tool or application and difficult to install. This product can fit just about any handle that is cylindrical or semi-cylindrical. Its versatility is the true value proposition. Simply keeping Re-Grips on hand to remedy a visual injury hazard is a great proactive way to minimize risk says Darren Leight who is a Production Manager at a Virginia based manufacturing plant. We have seen our minor injury reports continue to decrease because we keep a stock of them and use them on the fly. They are truly that diverse that we have used them on numerous tools and machinery.
With its special patent pending design, Re-Grip is easy for anyone to install. The elastic grip is held extended by an inner coil, forming a tube that fits over the handle. The user simply pulls a tab at the bottom to unwind the coil, allowing the elastic grip to constrict around the handle. The entire process takes seconds. Having Re-Grips handy on our trucks has been great. Every time we need a replacement grip on a construction site, we simply grab a Re-Grip and in seconds we are back up and running. It minimizes downtime while maintaining our safety requirements, which are both, critical to any business says Jamie Bahr, owner of Inland Valley Pipe Line.
Re-Grip is available in three sizes with clearance of 1.3, 1.6 and 2.1 for application with most types of handles. Length is seven inches but custom lengths are available. Product information is also available at Re-Grip.com. Contact Re-Grip by email at email@example.com, or call 800-607-8931 for more information.
RE-GRIP is a revolutionary new way to add comfort, durability, and safety to almost anything with a handle. RE-GRIP provides a method of improving a handle grip by adding mechanical and environmental protection when installed on a variety of cylindrical and semi-cylindrical objects such as: hand tools, garden tools, sports equipment, handle bars, wheelbarrows, levers, and much more. Its ergonomic design relaxes your grip and reduces muscle fatigue. It helps prevent blisters and is non-slip for better control and safety.
