Musculoskeletal Disorders or MSDs make up a large number of workplace injury claims, especially in industrial, manufacturing and construction work. The cost including financial, physical and emotional, associated with MSDs, is much greater than the cost would be to prevent the injury. Ergonomics is the process of designing work areas to be user friendly, using tools and equipment to reduce strain and/or repetitive motions and teaching employees proper work methods, correct posture and safe lifting techniques. Proper training in body form and ergonomics can help prevent painful and sometimes debilitating strain on your employees.
