The Oakdale School District found that its workers were having numerous over-the-shoulder injuries caused by strenuous lifting. It was recommended to them that they find a way to automate the task. After speaking with the sales team at ERGOdymanics, they purchased six 60” ATDs to dump trash containers into their five-foot trash dumpsters so their employees would not have to continue doing it by hand.
Their new ATDs are utilized the most during the cafeteria's three lunch periods. However, the custodial staff has also been using the ATDs at the end of the day while cleaning classrooms. They discovered that after the purchase of their ATDs, the number of injuries has dramatically decreased. In their words, they would "absolutely recommend" working with ERGOdynamics and purchasing the equipment. The results they have seen are everything they expected and more.
