At Humantech, we know that when a company supports continuous improvement activities that include ergonomics training, and ergonomic design and improvement events, these good things happen across the organization:
- positive employee engagement
- reduced waste and cost
- improved product quality
- faster rates of production
- better customer satisfaction and loyalty
- fewer injuries
- more profit
However, we recognize that not all organizations make ergonomics a priority. During the month of October, we asked our readers to weigh on this question:
Does Your Company Budget for Ergonomics? (training, fixes, etc.)
Of the 54 readers surveyed, 62% said “Yes” their company budgets for ergonomics, and 38% replied “No” their company doesn’t fund ergonomic improvements and training.
