What is Ergonomics?

"Ergonomics, in its simplest context, is the study of work. The objectives of ergonomic intervention are to prevent injuries due to overexertion and cumulative trauma, to increase profitability through productivity gains and reduced compensation costs, and to improve workplace quality of life."

Robert O. Andres, Ph.D., CPE President and Founder Ergonomic Engineering, Inc.

The Ergonomic Program Review

Who Needs EEI's Ergonomic Program Review?

The fact is, ergonomic programs can go stale. Like all safety issues, ergonomics is on-going effort which requires continued commitment and regular review.

When do you know it's time to review your ergonomic program? Here's a guide:

If it's been more than two years since you've reviewed current policies and procedures

If your injury rates and compensation costs are starting to creep back up

If you are unable to document effectiveness of current ergonomic practices

If you would like to expand, upgrade or modernize your program

If you do not have an ergonomics program currently in place!

If any of the above statements apply to your business, then it's time for a fresh perspective-- it's time for an EEI Ergonomic Program Review.
