When a workplace injury occurs, a company will look at the incident from every possible angle, determining what exactly went wrong and how to prevent it from happening again. In the case of Brett Hanvey, he took it upon himself to design a better solution after suffering an injury of his own.
Hanvey is a production supervisor at Deli Star Corp. in Fayetteville, Ill. He has worked for the company for three years, working in packaging, sanitation and as a cook/chill operator. In May of 2015, he injured his hand while gripping the side edges of a smokehouse cart.
