    Ergonomics Program Management - Making It More than Just Safety

    Ergonomics related injuries account for nearly 50 percent of the frequency and 80 percent of a company’s workers’ compensation claims. But, ergonomics impacts many other parts of your business: productivity, purchasing, and human resource management, to name just a few. This presentation outlines what a good ergonomics program should include and how to make it part of your business plan and operations, not just part of the safety program. Examples of Total Return on Investment shows why ergonomics is more than just safety. It’s good business!
