At Summit Chiropractic and Longevity Center, we can help you with workers compensation issues if they happen to arise. However, we’d like you to practice safety, first. Workers in many different industries and occupations can be exposed to risk factors at work, such as lifting heavy items, bending, reaching overhead, pushing and pulling heavy loads, working in awkward body postures, and performing the same or similar tasks repetitively. This is why it’s important for companies to encourage ergonomics in the workplace. Ergonomics is the science that deals with designing and arranging things so that people can use them easily and safely.
Four proven benefits of a strong workplace ergonomics process include:
1. Improves Productivity – By designing a job to allow for good posture, less exertion, fewer motions, and better heights and reaches, the workstation becomes more efficient.
2. Improves Quality – Poor ergonomics leads to frustrated and fatigued workers. Proper ergonomics allows employs to do their job like they were trained.
3. Improves Employee Engagement – Employees notice when the company is putting forth their best efforts to ensure their health and safety and generally makes them more eager to interact.
4. Creates a Safer Environment – Healthy employees are a company’s most valuable asset and will lead to better performance.
