The Ten Days of Ergonomics

Every year, the Humantech team produces a cornucopia of free blog posts, articles, webinars, videos, e-books, and more. With all that information to choose from, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed or not know where to start! We’ve combed through the plethora of information and chosen these ten as some of the best of 2019. Most can be read, watched, or listened to in about 5 to 30 minutes, so I challenge you to click one link each day. Think of it as an ergonomics version of an advent calendar or menorah!

WEBINAR:  Why Ergonomics?  Communicating Value to Business Stakeholders – This was one of my favorite webinars this year. Full of helpful statistics based on peer-reviewed research, this webinar arms you with information to help gain leadership buy-in for your ergonomics process. (Bonus: the webinar was accompanied by an e-book that can be found here.)

BLOG POST:  Four Tips for Developing Sustainable Ergonomics Improvements – In my experience, identifying the risk is the easy part; finding clever improvements that are sustainable is the hard part.  This blog post provides you with some great tips to do just that!

WEB RESOURCE:  The MSD Prevention Guide for Ontario – At the Centre of Research Expertise for the Prevention of Musculoskeletal Disorders (CRE-MSD), our neighbors to the north created this excellent resource that I highly recommend keeping bookmarked.

BLOG POST:  Does Standing All Day Make You Healthier? – The sit/stand debate is still very prevalent in both office and industrial environments. This blog post tackles the conversation head on and even provides you with a few additional resources.

WEBINAR:  Estimating the Financial Impact of Ergonomics – In our final webinar of 2019, our team provides a cost-justification estimator to help you determine the value of an ergonomics improvement.

BLOG POST:  Holiday Gifts for the Office Worker – Every year, we put together a gift guide for those can’t-be-missed items. Check out the cool finds in this year’s edition!
