Ben Franklin got it right over two centuries ago when he said, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” Many of you who know us well here at Humantech may have heard us talk about prevention against ergonomic issues by moving your company up the Ergonomics Maturity Curve™. The curve illustrates the evolutionary process many companies go through as they develop sustainable success with better performance from people, products and processes. The bottom line is that companies that take a more proactive and advanced approach to addressing ergonomic risk become more effective and efficient at delivering products and processes that are ergonomically designed right from the start.
For this reason, I’m excited to announce the launch of Humantech’s latest e-book, Six Ways to Apply Ergonomics in Design, authored by yours truly. I think it’s a great starting point for involving your designers and engineers in the ergonomics process and establishing proper ergonomic design guidelines. Best of all—it’s free! I hope you’ll download it, share it, and please let me know what you think!
