Ergonomic Program

 

Ergonomics is the “Science of Work”, adjusting jobs to people. It finds the perfect fit between the worker, the job and the environment. Its goals are to improve workers safety and comfort, thus reducing the incidence of work-related injuries.

Each year 600,000 workers are affected by Cumulative Trauma Disorders – costing businesses $15 to $20 billion annually. Workplace injuries and illnesses are a major factor in business profitability. A single injury can seriously affect your company’s revenue.

The cost of lost productivity, unfilled jobs, Workers’ Compensation and mounting medical bills are significantly more punitive than the costs of underwriting preventive measures.
