What is Ergonomics?
Are your spending a lot of time and money on accident prevention but find your compensation claims are still to high? Maybe the problem isn't accidents but predictable injuries. Whenever you see employees lifting, bending, stretching or contorting their arms, legs and bodies in a repetitive manner, you can predict trouble in the form of injuries, absenteeism and lost efficiency. In most cases, the causes can be easily corrected by the use and application of simple, readily available material handling equipment designed to minimize motion, stress and movement to reduce injuries and increase productivity at the work place.
