Changing technology and the multi-generational/aging workforce are creating new ergonomics challenges for employers. Repetitive stress injuries have become one of the leading causes of lost work days, and medical costs now make up more than 60% of a typical workers’ comp claim.
Are you looking to reduce workers’ comp and health insurance costs? Improve productivity and employee engagement? Develop and maintain a culture of safety? These are all possible if you know how to identify ergonomics red flags in your work environment, and establish a program to eliminate or reduce your exposure to these risk factors.
Ergonomics draws from the fields of engineering, and medical and health sciences to optimize the work environment. Understanding and applying its principles will help you fit the workplace to the worker by modifying or redesigning the job, workstation, tools, or surroundings.
