Why is Ergonomics So Important?
Focusing on health and wellness is good for people and great for business. A repetitive strain injury (RSI) can cost thousands of dollars in treatment costs and lost productivity. Many RSIs can be prevented with proper ergonomic support. Here are just some of the benefits to having a strong ergonomic program in place.
Ergonomics reduces costs. By reducing ergonomic risk factors, you can prevent costly RSIs. With approximately $1 out of every $3 in workers compensation costs attributed to MSDs, this represents an opportunity for significant cost savings.
Ergonomics improves productivity. The best ergonomic solutions will help improve productivity. By modifying habits and workstation equipment to support good posture and less exertion, the worker can become more efficient, productive, and focused on tasks instead of worrying about discomfort.
Ergonomics improves quality. Poor ergonomics leads to frustrated and fatigued workers that can’t do their best work. Simple modifications can make a big difference – and allow employees to perform at their finest.
Ergonomics improves employee engagement. Employees notice when the company is putting forth their best efforts to ensure their health and safety. If an employee does not experience fatigue and discomfort during their workday, it can reduce turnover, decrease absenteeism, improve morale and increase employee involvement.
A focus on ergonomics is just good business!
