Webinar: Ergonomics - Taking a proactive approach to safe design

Ergonomics is the scientific study of the worker/machine interface; examining the capabilities and limitations of the worker in relation to the demands of the machine, job and work environment. The goal of ergonomics is to reduce the stress associated with the work exerted and thus minimize or eliminate injuries and disorders in the workplace. Effective design applications can lead to reducing pain and costly injuries for employees and improving productivity and efficiencies for the employer.

Join us on Wednesday, October 28th, at 2pm EST and learn:

  • Standards available for guidance
