Greenlee prides itself on incorporating ergonomics in the design of its tools, including how they are used, the environment they’re used in and how that affects the body.
“KUB has taken initiative to provide us with these newer battery tools to focus on the health of its employees long term.”
Justin Locascio
Lineworker Apprentice

“I don’t believe ergonomics is understood well enough throughout the industry, particularly the utilities. There’s been a lot of focus on what will kill you instantly, but we haven’t really honed in on those long-term issues or potential things that could hurt us down the line, like ergonomics”
Hayden Sparks
Safety Specialist
KUB
“We had already explored a few areas of ergonomics, but we’re opening our scope to include proper tool selection. A study like this will tell us, was it the straw that broke the camel’s back or was it the multiple actions of every single day that could have prevented that injury.”
Emily Smith
Occupational Health Team Lead
KUB
“Ergonomics is very important to me because I’m dependent on my body for providing for my family.”

“KUB in the past hasn’t had too many quantitative analyses. It hasn’t been able to measure an ergonomic issue or pinpoint our problems.”
