Ergonomics is a frequent topic of discussion with us here at Burovision; we build spaces with the health and well being of those that will be inhabiting them in mind and always want to promote positive growth and improved health of both people and organizations.
Here are some of the ways in which applying ergonomic techniques or facilitating a complete ergonomically friendly system within your space can benefit your workers specifically:
Ergonomics-related injuries tend to be long-term, creating an ongoing drain on workers’ compensation and medical costs. The list of statistics supporting the cost-savings that result from a reduction of MSD injuries is almost as long as the time it takes for a back injury to heal. From the average cost of a single, chronic low-back disorder – $100,000 – to the $13.4 billion employers pay annually in costs related to overexertion injuries due to lifting, pushing, pulling, holding, carrying or throwing an object, enough data is out there to support investing in an ergonomics program from an economic standpoint
An ergonomics program in any work environment helps improve employee morale and productivity. No matter your work setting, whether it’s an office or manufacturing site, employees who are less fatigued and are able to work without discomfort are more productive, more alert and happier overall.’
