Tradesmen who work with their hands can be more prone to injury by the very nature of their labor. They use heavy tools, sharp tools, high-speed tools, and work long hours in adverse weather with repeating motions. Arthritis can be caused or worsened by these factors, and work site injuries are always a threat. In addition, they face the same probabilities as the general population of automobile accidents or diseases such as cancer, stroke and heart disease. Disability Work Tools is ready to help any worker get back to work, regardless of the cause of his disability!
Here is an opportunity you won’t want to miss! From July 22-24 in East Lansing, Michigan, workers with disabilities can test drive a heavy-equipment manlift and an all-terrain Action Track Wheelchair and learn about working on the job with arthritis. Michigan State University Ag Expo offers this great chance for heavy equipment operators with arthritis.
