Aging Workforce: A Hot Topic in Ergonomics
by Greg Cresswell, CPE
Today I spoke at the West Michigan chapter of the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) on “Designing for the Aging Workforce”. This is becoming a popular topic among safety professionals as trends in the world’s demographics show that proportionally today’s workforce is increasingly made up of the “chronologically gifted”. As our workforce ages, it is the responsibility of operations managers and production engineers to design a safe and efficient work environment to match the capabilities of their employees.
To hear us speak on this topic again, join us at the Applied Ergonomics Conference in Nashville, TN on March 26-29. Or join us by signing up for our next webinar which will cover this topic in more depth.
