On Thursday 13th August 2020, the 30th annual left handers day takes place. A day to tell everyone how proud you are of being left-handed and, as we live in a world designed for right-handers, help raise awareness of the everyday issues that lefties face, including:
- Using scissors
- Use of spiral notebooks
- Playing musical instruments
In 2020, it is estimated that 13% of the global population is left-handed. This has grown significantly over the last 100 years, in 1920 it was estimated that only 4% of the global population were left-handed.
Over the years there have been many left-handed people in high-profile positions, including:
- Innovators such as Bill Gates, Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg
- Scientists including Leonardo da Vinci, Marie Curie, Sir Isaac Newton & Alan Turing
- 1 in 4 Apollo astronauts including the 1st man on the moon, Neil Armstrong
- 4 of the 5 original designers of the Macintosh computer
- 5 of the last 8 presidents of the United States
At EWFM we can offer our customers products that support left-handed access and offer left-handed features, including:
Loading & Unloading Arms
All our Loading & Unloading Arms can be supplied with both left and right-hand operation. This ensures your operators have ease of use and can access any filling or emptying point conveniently.
We can offer our Swivel Joints with left-handed threads. For health and safety purposes these are normally used with gases to stop accidental connection and fluid going into a gas line.
