Most people understand the impact ergonomics has on employee well-being but what about business performance?

Safety and human resources professionals understand that ergonomics improves employee well-being, and leads to reductions in causal absenteeism, recordable injuries, lost-time cases, and workers’ compensation costs, among others. Yet, other business stakeholders, such as plant leadership, quality, operations, boards of directors, and investors, generally have a limited awareness or understanding of the value of ergonomics.

This e-book explains how to communicate the value of an ergonomics process to business stakeholders and generate additional support for your ergonomics efforts.

This e-book will cover such topics as:

  • the consequences of not addressing workplace ergonomics
  • the impact ergonomics has on employee well-being
  • the enhanced business performance that results from “ergonomics done right”
