What is ergonomics and why is it so important?
Work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are one of the most common causes of lost time injuries and illnesses in the workplace.
Work activities that are frequent and repetitive or activities with awkward postures contribute to MSDs such as carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, thoracic outlet syndrome and tension neck syndrome.
The benefits of well-designed ergonomic office equipment includes decreased injury, illness, and workers’ compensation costs, as well as, increased efficiency, decreased absenteeism, employee turnover and increased employee engagement.
People are the most valuable asset of any business and the creation and implementation of effective policies and ergonomic workstations showcases your company’s commitment to safety and health.
Leading companies around the world are implementing ergonomic work place solutions and reaping the rewards of increased productivity and creativity!!
