I am a sorter of 6 going on 7 years and never had an injury until today. Sups refused to stop the belts, refused to hire more staff because more than half of the staff got fired or became drivers so I had to work harder thus hurting my lower back. I can barely walk, sit and roll to my side while laying down. Im pretty pissed. They gave me tomorrow off but on Monday I have light duty.
I grab the parcel on opposite corners, sort it, and it falls apart losing most of its contents. A thin plastic band isn't going to hold it together. Sometimes the band slips off the damn box ! Im pretty sure they have enough money to invest in tape or better packaging.
