Using ergonomic education and products to minimize injuries related to overexertion.

Musculoskeletal disorders (MSD) affect millions of Americans every year, causing pain and discomfort. Many organizations and healthcare professionals have joined the Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSD) Pledge to address this widespread issue. This is a collaborative effort to improve the lives of those suffering from MSD.

The MSD Pledge in Brief

The MSD Pledge is a collective initiative that brings together healthcare providers, researchers, policymakers, and organizations to combat the significant challenges posed by musculoskeletal disorders.

These disorders encompass a wide range of conditions affecting bones, joints, muscles, and connective tissues.  More than 250 million Americans experience musculoskeletal pain annually.

Why We Joined the MSD Pledge

By signing the pledge Caster Concepts and other top companies pledge to:

Cost-saving ergonomic products to reduce costly injuries.

According to EHS Today, MSD care remains one of the top three cost drivers in the U.S. health system. It consumes 1/6th of employer-sponsored plan dollars and costs $600 billion to the U.S. economy.

Taking the MDS pledge not only means a commitment related directly to a safer workplace at Caster Concepts.  It also follows our pledge to ergonomics and safety through the many ergonomic casters we manufacture that help prevent overexertion injuries by reducing push force for cart operators.



Wellness for well beyond our company.

Joining the Musculoskeletal Disorders Pledge is not just a commitment to our profession but to the well-being of millions of Americans who suffer from musculoskeletal pain.

A good way to honor this pledge is to educate customers on the benefits of ergonomic casters and to provide tips designed to ensure that you are moving loaded wheel carts appropriately to avoid injury. Knowing how to physically push the cart and ensuring that you have the right caster wheels for the job can save countless thousands of dollars, improve your production, and keep employees healthy and happy.
