Naira Campbell- Kyureghyan, a University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee professor, developed a new wrench that could prevent a large percentage of injuries for electric utility workers. Changing meters causes about a third of all injuries for these specific workers, which often result in costly surgeries and income loss. The new wrench is designed to reduce the use of shoulder muscles, and does not slip like older models.
Campbell-Kyureghyan, along with her graduate students, study bio-mechanics in an effort to make gas industry jobs safer. With safety in mind, the new tools aim to lower the number of injuries for workers, while also stimulating the economy. Employers are eager to implement the special wrenches because fewer injuries means more productivity for companies.
While new advancements and innovations like this are wonderful, the sad fact remains that injuries caused by dangerous products are far too common. If you have been injured because of a dangerous, defective, or otherwise unsafe product, you may be able to pursue compensation for the pain and suffering you’ve experienced.
