Bringing Professionals Together

Unlocking the Value of Ergonomics with Big Data

Wednesday, May 1, 2019 1:00pm - 2:00pm EDT  
Host: AIHA
By: Jeff Sanford, BHK, MHK, CPE, Director of Consulting and Ergonomics Engineer, Humantech and Jennie Dustin, CPE, CSP, Managing Consultant and Ergonomics Engineer, Humantech

Big data has become a prominent buzzword in recent years. It gives visibility to the need for addressing musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) and provides an aggregation of information - this being a key benefit. This collection translates mere data into meaningful evidence, what we like to call a "super-ergonomics-mind." This webinar will share key statistics and meaningful trends based on 150,000 completed MSD risk assessments to help IH and safety professionals make better decisions and deploy smarter solutions with their ergonomics programs.

Participants will learn:

  • the value that ergonomics brings to organizations.
  • how data can drive safety and IH professionals to make change.
  • how market and industry trends are identified.
  • how smarter solutions improve both employee well-being and business performance.
