Ergonomics

Good Ergonomics is Good Economics

According to the CDC, rates of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) in healthcare occupations are among the highest of all U.S. industries - as high as five times the national average. MSDs represent over 70 percent of the workers' compensation costs in most hospitals, according to OSHA. Cost per injury is an estimated $12,000. By providing staff with ergonomically adjustable equipment and supplies, you'll have happier, healthier employees providing better care to your patients, while simultaneously saving your bottom line.

A good ergonomics program yields more benefits than it costs because it can help:
  • Improve employee satisfaction and productivity
  • Reduce insurance premiums
  • Reduce employee absenteeism and turnover
  • Reduce errors
  • Improve patient outcomes
