Humantech's New Infographic Highlights The Need For Office Ergonomics


Ann Arbor, MICH – Humantech’s new office ergonomics infographic, 10 Reasons Why You Need Office Ergonomics, is available for download. The consequences of not having an office ergonomics program are emphasized in three categories:

1.    Pain – Implementing an office ergonomics program can help reduce the job-related discomfort and pain experienced by up to one-half of office workers today. By providing employees with proper training in how to set up a workstation, along with the right tools and equipment, injury and illness rates decline and employees are more productive.

2.    Cost – Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) account for one-third of injury and illness costs in U.S. businesses. A workstation that is set up based on the user’s anthropometry promotes good “sitting hygiene” and eliminates the postures that lead to MSDs.

3.    Changing Trends – The workplace is constantly changing. With advances in technology, people are sitting more, working longer, and working from home and other non-office locations.

Effective ergonomics programs have been proven to substantially reduce work-related injury claims by managing these three elements. Humantech developed Ergopoint® Office Suite to help companies manage office ergonomics. To learn more about office ergonomics and this online solution, visit www.ergopoint.com.
