Industrial workers face some of the most dangerous working conditions in the country and throughout the world. Safety technology and equipment continues to evolve to protect these workers. A new kind of robotic exoskeleton is being developed to protect industrial workers from head injuries, back injuries, falls, hearing damage and even repetitive stress injuries.
Our Spartanburg workers' compensation attorneys are dedicated to protecting the workers of North and South Carolina. We are abreast of new developments statewide, nationally, and internationally to promote worker safety. Though proper safety equipment can protect workers, many employers fail to take necessary precautions or to train employees. In the event of an accident, injury, or wrongful death, we are here to protect employee rights.
According to a recent report from Verge, a new exoskeleton combines man and machine to keep workers safe and prevent injuries. European researchers have been developing "Robo-mate," an exoskeleton designed to insulate workers from common workplace accidents. Experts report that the exoskeleton could be a viable safety tool for industrial and factory workers within the next three years.
