“Switching from handheld tape dispensers to carton sealers resulted in improved ergonomics and a 20-30% capacity increase,” tells Keld Duevang, head of department at Coop.dk.
Coop.dk has its distribution centre and warehouse in Odense from where the company ships its products to all of Denmark.
Coop.dk has a strong focus on ergonomics and proper work postures in its packaging department.
Repetitive work and numerous lifting motions constitute a big part of everyday life in a packaging department. To counteract this, the company introduced work routine rotation, among others, to avoid that any employee palletises more than two hours.
Also, there are various aids in the form of lifting tools etc. to further alleviate the work burden.
