    Unlocking the Value of Ergonomics with Big Data

    Big data has become a prominent buzzword in recent years. It gives visibility to the need for addressing musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) and provides an aggregation of information – this being a key benefit. This collection translates mere data into meaningful evidence, what we like to call a “super-ergonomics-mind.” This complimentary 1-hour webinar will share key statistics and meaningful trends based on 150,000 completed MSD risk assessments to help IH and safety professionals make better decisions and deploy smarter solutions with their ergonomics programs. Presented through the American Industrial Hygiene Association.

    Why Ergonomics? Communicating the Value to Business Stakeholders

    Presented by Blake McGowan, CPE
    Safety and human resources professionals understand that ergonomics improves employee well-being, and leads to reductions in causal absenteeism, modified duty cases, recordable injuries, lost-time cases, and workers’ compensation costs, among others.
