Ergonomics: Essential to Manufacturing Excellence

Having an ergonomics initiative is pretty common these days, but how effectively are companies able to demonstrate value beyond just health and safety metrics? When ergonomics is done right, everyone benefits, not just safety; from operations to engineering, from leadership to investors. My colleague, Blake McGowan, explains  how ergonomics can lead to quantifiable enhancements in business performance and shares some of the impacts of ergonomics in the article Ergonomics: Essential to Manufacturing Excellence published in the July issue of Professional Safety.

These include:

  • Enhancements in business performance
  • Higher product quality
  • Better manufacturing performance
  • Improved employee engagement
  • Better human capital management
  • Better stock performance
  • Better credit rating
