37 Years In Plant And Office Ergonomics


Worked 2 worker's comp insurance companies conducting surveys of manufacturing, health care, service companies, public employers to assess safety programs and suggest improvements; a good part of those visits involved ergo exposures that might lead to injury; and would also include injury analysis to determine if ergo exposures might be contributing to claims. OIften these suggestions paid off in reduced workers comp costs.

I would take notes, photos, interview supervison and employees; if I noticed a problem Iwould suggest solutions- for instance if employees were walking a long distance with heavy loads I might suggest locating the storage rack closer to the job and at waist level to reduce strains.
