Ergonomics-related injuries, including musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) and Cumulative Trauma Disorders (CTDs), are a common and costly problem for employers with employees who spend long periods of time in office or laboratory work environments. OSHA statistics indicate that MSD-related workers’ compensation expenses cost businesses between $15 and $20 billion each year. What’s more, the Institute of Medicine estimates the total economic burden to companies resulting from workplace MSDs – including both the loss of work and compensation costs – to be as high as $54 billion annually.

Our new webinar, “
Office Ergonomics - The Good, The Bad, The ROI” presented by Gene Kay, director of ergonomics at VelocityEHS, breaks down the true cost of CTDs and MSDs, demonstrates the effectiveness of ergonomics software, and arms EHS and HR professionals with the ROI information they need to make the case for ergonomics in their organizations.
