An efficient proactive ergonomic program focuses on management commitment, early risk identification, mitigation, employee engagement and training. Managing such a program often requires significant investment of time and resources. In many instances the inability to measure the true impact of these ergonomic efforts in addition to the cost of the dedicated time and resources makes it difficult to demonstrate the true value to the organization. This presentation will highlight how integrating technology in the ergonomics program and using tools such as process management software, your ergonomics program can be strengthened and streamlined to improve its value for your organization. The attendees will gain insight on centralizing the ergonomics process, resource allocation, employee engagement and measurement of the outcomes.
