The Humantech System® has three key components
Build knowledge quickly. With access to interactive online training modules covering everything from principles of ergonomics to design guidelines, you can choose which modules are appropriate for your teams. The best part is that your employees will learn the essential elements of ergonomics as they need it, and before our experts arrive on site, allowing the focus of the on-site visit to be on making real-time fixes.
The Job Improvement Process
Gain skills to assess and fix jobs. Knowledge can be taught, but skills must be practiced. Once the online training is finished, your teams will work alongside our certified professional ergonomists to assess and improve problem jobs. You might call it a workshop, but we like to think of it as getting things done.
The Humantech System provides users with online tools to capture assessment details:
- Risk analysis
- Root cause analysis
- Action plans with e-mail reminders
- Risk reduction results
Data and Reporting
Verify and track progress. With The Humantech System, ergonomics process owners can easily monitor the activities of the ergonomics team, track the status of improvement plans, and generate reports, such as:
- Risk maps – to prioritize jobs by department, site, business unit, or enterprise
- Improvement reports – to track the status of improvement plans for individual jobs, a site, a business unit, or an enterprise
- Training status – to monitor teams’ progress through the training modules
- Root cause – to target the cause rather than the symptom of your risk
