“Companies who show they can make small fixes, are the companies who are capable of making big improvements,” says Humantech Ergonomist Kent Hatcher. This is one of the many reasons we love the annual Find It – Fix It Challenge™. Now in its 7th year, the competition for Humantech clients recognizes and rewards some of the simple yet impactful ergonomic improvements made by employees all over the globe. With 180 entries representing 41 companies, it was no small task to determine a winner this year. But the Humantech ergonomists and staff were able to do it! We are happy to announce that the 2013 winner is Coca-Cola Odwalla Refreshments in Dinuba, CA. Honorable mentions were given to The Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company in Riesa, Germany and Hitchiner Manufacturing in Milford, NH. We invite you to watch the webinar announcing the winner and honorable mentions. It includes a touching interview with Bobbie Watts, corporate ergonomist for Coca-Cola. The winning team (see photo) should be proud and hopefully they will inspire others to think about how they can make their own workplace work better.
