Ways to Leverage Technology in Ergonomics
With the daily onslaught of new technology coming our way, and the notion and/ or claim that a product will improve our life or make our work more efficient, it’s sometimes difficult to determine if we actually need the product or whether we just want it. When it comes to business applications, the focus should be on optimizing efficiency and effectiveness. The field of ergonomics is not an island; like a lot of business processes, it must evolve to take advantage of relevant available technology or risk being left behind as a series of dinosaur checklists, paper based assessment tools, handwritten measurements and instructor led trainings.

This presentation will focus on how you can utilize technology to make your ergonomics process better and more advanced. Specifically, we will share examples of how a few key tools, methods and approaches can accelerate your ergonomic risk reduction efforts, optimize your current resources and yet achieve a global engagement.

The presentation will include:
• Ergonomics training and development: Instructor-led vs. e-Learning educational modules
• Ways to optimize the efficiency and effectiveness of how you too can manage ergonomics and improvement processes (software solutions, web trainings, digital data collection equipment)
• The positive and negative impacts technology has on the user
• The impact technology could have on injuries in the workplace

Whether you are a heavy technology user, or prefer the “paper and pencil” model, you will come away with a list of best practices and tips to enhance the level of maturity of your ergonomics process.
