Ergonomic Consultation for Your Businesses
Since we opened our doors in 2001, we have helped companies develop and refine their ergonomics and corporate wellness programs. As ergonomists, we study human capabilities in relationship to work demands. Specifically, we minimize unnecessary motion in an effort to reduce stress put on the body.
Ergonomic programming follows these three basic principles:
- All work activities should permit the worker to adopt several different, but equally healthy and safe postures.
- Where muscular force has to be exerted it should be done by the largest appropriate muscle groups available.
- Work activities should be performed with the joints at about mid-point of their range of movement. This applies particularly to the head, trunk, and upper limbs.
We approach ergonomics programming from a different angle than any other consultant we have encountered. Our basic premise?
Health isn’t a cost center.
At least, it does not have to be. Many of our peers approach injury risk from this standpoint: use injury as a cue for prevention, and your injury-related costs will probably decrease as a result.
