Leading an Ergonomic Culture to Achieve Multiple Returns

Join us for this live webcast with Robert Pater!

Meeting Description Details
Soft-tissue and other "wear down" injuries can seriously affect a workforce - especially one that is aging. And, for many companies, traditional approaches have shown limited results, with many stuck on a performance plateau. And ergonomic problems can affect everyone - from those doing physical work, managers, dispersed/field employees, office workers and more.

The good news is that, with the right strategy and implementation, developing a high performance ergonomic culture can benefit companies on 3 concentric levels 1) prevent many physical ergonomic-related injuries & illnesses 2) propel overall safety results & culture, even with non-ergonomic related issues and simultaneously 3) promote a sustaining, high performance environment of engagement, creativity & quality.

Focus in this webinar is on providing proven, efficient approaches for accomplishing several objectives:  building a critical mass of workers directing attention, adjusting to small changes that build toward enhancing safety & overall performance.

Topics include:
  • Recognizing "hidden" managerial and employee challenges/obstacles to improving ergonomic actions and performance
  • Identifying strengths and limitations of 9 traditional ergonomic "solutions"
  • Characteristics of highest-level ergonomic culture
  • Assessing 3 strategic approaches to ergonomic interventions
  • 5 critical components for building an "ergonomic mindset" throughout your company
  • Leadership strategies for moving towards higher-level 3-level ergonomic performance and culture
