ERGONOMICS - CENT$ & SENSIBILITY
Do your employees complain of pain in their wrists, neck or back after working all day? Is their pain interfering with productive work? Afraid WCB claim costs will become unmanageable?
Are lost time injuries in your company increasing? If you answered "Yes" to any of these questions, ergonomic improvement is your solution.
ERGONOMICS (or Human Factors) is the science of designing the job to fit the worker, not forcing the worker to fit the job.

The objective of ergonomics is to maximize productivity while lowering the risk of Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs). MSDs develop as a result of long term exposure to a combination of ergonomic risk factors such as repetition, high forces and awkward postures. Examples of MSDs include carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis and back disorders.
The benefits of applying ergonomic principles:
- Maximize productivity, efficiency and quality;
- Reduce MSD risk by eliminating or minimizing   ergonomic risk factors;
- Improve employee morale; and
- Cost savings associated with injury-related   absenteeism, treatment, new hire training and   WCB claims.
