Ergonomic Protection from Brass Knuckle® Helps Fight Musculoskeletal Disorders

July 18, 2024

CLEVELAND—According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, musculoskeletal disorders are the most frequently recorded injuries in construction, masonry, and many occupations. Tasks that routinely require kneeling and bending can put an employee at significant risk. Personal protective equipment (PPE) such as knee pads and back support can help reduce the risk of injury and minimize joint fatigue.

Ergonomic protection

Brass Knuckle® ergonomic protection, including knee pads and back support, is designed to help alleviate musculoskeletal disorders resulting from risk factors at work, including heavy lifting, bending, reaching overhead, kneeling for prolonged periods of time, pushing and pulling heavy loads, and working in awkward body postures.

Ergonomic Knee Pads (BKKN100 and BKKN200). When work brings you to your knees—literally—Brass Knuckle® has you covered with knee pad solutions that have excellent protection and varying degrees of stability, flexibility, and comfort. BKKN100 is a light-duty cushioned and adjustable knee pad; BKKN200 is heavy-duty protection with hard contoured cap.

Ergonomic Back Support (BKBS). Brass Knuckle BKBS back support offers reinforcement that can help workers avoid back injuries and fatigue in occupations that require stooping, lifting, carrying, or even holding static positions for long periods of time. These supports feature elastic suspenders to distribute body stress and tapered abdominal panels to better conform to the body.

When engineering the hazard away cannot be easily done, Brass Knuckle offers modern, lightweight ergonomic protection products in styles designed to keep workers in compliance.
