Date: Wednesday, September 18, 2019
Time: 2:00 p.m. EDT (GMT -4, New York)
Duration: 1 Hour
Event Type: Live Webinar
A prominent buzzword in recent years, “big data” is giving visibility to the need for addressing musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) in the workplace. A collection of ergonomics information can translate into meaningful evidence, or what we like to call a “super-ergonomics-mind”.
Collectively, Humantech’s software solutions have one of the largest and richest ergonomics-related datasets known. With close to 100,000 users and over 150,000 completed MSD risk assessments, meaningful trends have been captured and benchmarked against its 100+ global organizations. Since the company’s inception over 40 years ago, board-certified professional ergonomists, software solutions, and worldwide client engagements have contributed to this super-ergonomics-mind. This information will help safety professionals make better decisions and deploy smarter solutions with their ergonomics programs. Key statistics and meaningful trends will be shared.
Participants will learn:
- the value that ergonomics brings to organizations.
- how data can drive health & safety professionals to make change.
- how market and industry trends are identified.
- how smarter solutions improve both employee well-being and business performance.
