The True Value of Ergonomics

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. Not only that, ergonomics is sometimes seen as a less “risky” or imminent health and safety concern, since ergonomics focuses on the cumulative effects of work on long-term health and well-being. As a result, ergonomics is not always prioritized, and the potential value of the program may not be fully apparent to all stakeholders. However, much like a good Health & Safety Program does more than ensuring employees’ safety, ergonomics provides many more benefits than injury prevention.

ABOUT THE WEBINAR

Low back pain is a common issue that most people experience at some point in their lives, with an increased prevalence as we age. Furthermore, most people who experience low back pain endure recurrent episodes during their lifetime.

Low back pain is not only potentially debilitating, but it affects our productivity at work and our ability to participate in activities outside of work. Through awareness of body mechanics and posture, care taken in the activities we perform, and attention to maintaining our general health and wellness we can minimize the loads we place on our backs, protecting them into the future.

In this presentation we will discuss:

  • Why posture matters to the health of our backs
  • What postures are ideal to protect our backs
  • How to apply these postural principles to activities of work and home, including computer work, driving, and yard work
  • Strategies to optimize physical and mental health and wellbeing

Upon completion, Sit/Stand Ergonomics and Back Safety Toolkit cards will be provided to all participants.
