We are already assisting meat processing facilities to get a head start on bolstering their ergonomics initiatives.
Mr. Huber also engages in ergonomics and safety projects across Minnesota, the U.S. and Canada.

Diverse expertise fosters cost effective improvements in a wide range of companies and that experience continues with over 40 years of strength. Huber advises senior management and all levels of operations to reduce musculoskeletal injury costs and boost overall productivity, safety and efficiency.
SS&E developed the exclusive ExeLift™ back injury prevention training based on his experience as a nationally ranked Olympic-style weightlifter. This is an education process, stimulating strong injury reduction performances. One distribution center reported an 89% back injury reduction over a single year. That benefit extends to businesses like national truck manufacturing, one of the world’s largest auto makers, major airlines, aerospace manufacturers and food producers, among others. ExeLift™ is most effective after senior management applies our design upgrades. Audience ratings of the program consistently post in the mid-90th percentile.
