Scaffold Caddy selected as a semi-finalist for the BWC Safety Innovation Award

The Scaffold Caddy has been selected as a semi-finalist for the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation 2017 Safety Innovation Awards competition.

Designed by 2015 OhioMBE Top FBE Cathy Holloway and James Henderson, the Scaffold Caddy was created to alleviate the need for construction workers to transport conventional scaffold  through a man door or on an elevator. It can also be utilized as a self-containment system, storing scaffolding when not in use.  The Scaffold Caddy helps eliminate workforce injuries.

The Ohio Bureau of Workmen’s Compensation performed an ergonomics study, and the results were astounding. The risk of CTD injury was decreased by 28% while production was increased by an amazing 88%. A task that previously took 70 minutes to complete can now be performed in only eight.

The finalists will be named in late December.
