The True Value of Ergonomics – What Cost : Benefit To Expect?

Are you underestimating the TRUE value of ergonomics? Our experience tells us that most employers and businesses do not understand the true value that effective ergonomic initiatives can have on their bottom line.

For too long ergonomics has resided in peoples’ opinion as just one component of a Health & Safety Program.
