We believe that Ergonomics is a crucial part of the overall HSE Management System and long term strategy.
Based on our experience, the majority of occupational injuries and illnesses, and associated workers compensation costs are ergonomic related. So, what we have found is that even if a company is in substantive compliance with HSE regulations, they may still have a high incidence rate of injuries and illnesses. Musculoskeletal disorders are one of the most prevalent and costly safety and health problems in the modern workplace. These results can be seen in the BLS Statistics.
