Ergonomics and Repetitive Motion Claim Prevention

Save your company money by establishing an effective ergonomics and injury prevention plan.

This topic will provide you with a basic understanding of the theory of ergonomics and what the five most common workplace risk factors are that impact all jobs. Awareness of early signs and symptoms, and how to encourage early reporting is essential in an effective ergonomics process that works to prevent the onset of injuries leading to workers’ compensation claims and rising costs. The benefits of using an ergonomics process to prevent injuries and the multiple strategies available to launch your ergonomics process to effectively drive down claims and costs will also be explained. From engaging upper management and employees, to holding supervisors and employees accountable, to educating and training your work force and enhancing the workplace environment through the implementation of ergonomic furniture and accessories. Receive a fundamental overview of why you should request an ergonomic analysis as an essential tool in managing medical-only and indemnity workers’ compensation claims, what to expect from an ergonomic work site analysis, who should deliver the service and your responsibility in implementing the recommended strategies. Ms. Heller-Ono shares her 23 years of insight helping companies maximize employee productivity and health while minimizing exposure to repetitive motion injuries.
