Identify Ergonomic Gaps With Five Key Points

Humantech’s Winnie Ip offers a video summary of her presentation at last year’s ASSE conference, Safety 2014, describing five key points when identifying gaps in your ergonomic program.
  1. Target the cause rather than consequences.
  2. Establish a common goal and encourage everyone to work toward the same goal.
  3. Ensure top-down commitment for achieving long-term sustainable success.
  4. Leverage an existing, familiar system in the ergo program.
  5. Maintain regular checkpoints to make sure you stay on track throughout the year.
