The Top Five Benefits of Embracing Ergonomics in the Workplace

Looking for a program that can not only lower healthcare and workman's comp insurance costs, but boost productivity and product quality as well? Put the implementation of a workplace ergonomics process on the top of your to-do list. Leading companies are jumping in - with many good reasons...

The Washington State Department of Labor uncovered the massive impact of ergonomics:

1. Cost reduction.
One dollar out of every three in workers comp costs is directly attributed to costly musculoskeletal disorders, which is easily prevented with ergonomics. (And this doesn't count indirect costs at twenty times those of the injury.)

2. Productivity improvements.
Workstations with improved ergonomic design boost productivity. How? Consider how good posture, fewer motions, less exertion, and more convenient height levels and reaches could streamline efficiency.

3. Quality boost.
Physically taxing jobs fatigue and frustrate workers, leading to shortcuts (sloppy construction, unfastened screws, etc.) that result in poor product quality, and quite possibly workplace injuries.

4. Employee engagement.
Employees notice your efforts to make them more comfortable, improving morale and increasing employee involvement. Additionally, employees that don’t leave work exhausted and in pain at the end of the day are more likely to come in tomorrow, and stay with the company.

5. Safety boost.
The cumulative effect of these listed benefits will show your business’ commitment to safety and health as a core value, providing the foundation for a stronger safety culture company wide.

Are you protecting your most valuable asset?
Your employees’ health and wellness are worth the cost. Ergonomics is/are a great investment - for your people and your business.
