    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.
