Why would a a business, and their employees need Workplace Wellness?
While the field of ergonomics is over 50 years old, only in the past decade has it become mainstream, at least as it applies to computer workstations. There are hundreds, make that thousands, of products on the market that are ergonomic (which translates to expensive!) Ergonomics is not a label; it is a systematic approach to analyzing how a task is performed and the environment in which it is performed, making changes, and reassessing the outcomes. Having a good ergonomic program is a benefit, not an expense. An effective ergonomics program increases productivity while decreasing risk factors for work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSD,) also known as repetitive strain injuries (RSI.)
In 2009, the most recent data available from the Bureau of labor Statistics, RSI/MSD were the most prevalent cause (68%) of workers compensation injuries involving missed work days (555,872 injuries).
