Powering the Human Workplace™

Customer Spotlight

At Ahold Delhaize’s 600,000 square foot Schodack, New York distribution center, nearly 200 associates work daily to load 80 trucks heading to stores across the Northeast.  

With the average distribution center worker lifting 50,000 pounds per day, overexertion injuries, fatigue, and lost productivity combined with employee turnover make the job particularly challenging.

A year-long study documenting the impact of SafeLift exosuits showed a 61% reduction in lower back and hip injuries among new users. To date, the SafeLift exosuits at Schodack have helped selectors lift over 50,000,000 pounds (the equivalent of 125 Boeing 747 airplanes!).

In an ergonomic study involving 50 associates making on average 2,000 lifts per day, exosuit usage was shown to reduce the number of unsafe lifts. Over the course of 5 months, daily unsafe lifts went from 760 on day 1, down to 485 by month 5, indicating the SafeLift exosuits encourage safer movements through their construction and application of assistive forces, as well as the SafeLift reports.

Injury Reduction

Duration of study

12 months

To address high injury rates among new warehouse associates, a leading grocery chain conducted a 12-month study to evaluate if SafeLift exosuits could improve safety. They deployed exosuits for 40 new associates working 79,000 hours and compared their injury rate to 300 experienced associates working 600,000 hours without exosuits. The new associates wearing exosuits saw a 5x lower injury rate compared to the experienced associates not wearing exosuits.
