In 2003, the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society (HFES) designated October of every year to be National Ergonomics Month (NEM). The goal of National Ergonomics Month is to create awareness and promote human factors and ergonomics to corporate executives, students, and the general public by providing information and services to the community.
This October, Humantech has some great awareness activities planned:
- Daily Tweets – Follow us on Twitter for the facts about workplace ergonomics and how to make your workplace healthy and productive.
- Daily Blog Posts – Each day, we’ll share our favorite tips, articles, and videos on The 30-Inch View blog.
- Web Course – Humantech ergonomists will present Ergonomics for the Aging and Obese Populations on October 29th. CEUs are available.
- Ask the Ergonomist – In this free, live web event, our certified professional ergonomists will answer your questions on anything and everything related to workplace ergonomics. Sign up now!
Speaking of promoting ergonomics, in November, we’ll announce the winners of Humantech’s eighth annual Find It – Fix It Challenge® live via WebEx. We can’t wait!
