Each year, hundreds of otherwise healthy persons come to us complaining of pain, numbness, weakness, tingling and associated symptoms on their various body parts. These symptoms, in 99.99% of cases, turns out to be work related injuries or RSI aka Computer Related Injuries. Often the main cause of these types of injuries is bad Ergonomics setup or poor awareness of “best ergonomic practices on work” among the work force. Ergonomics, in a layman’s language, simply means the best fit between the worker and the work environment including the job task.
A ergonomically sound workplace not only increases productivity to many folds but also help organizations save millions of dollars by saving on lost workdays/ production, compensating injured workers (Yes, It’s started in India!), and hiring and training new ones. Studies has proven that employees who are trained on best ergonomics practices are not only more productive but also high in workplace safety and health awareness. Organizations, those who has undergone any type of ergonomics intervention or training programs or have regular ergonomics screening on their campuses, has reported documented Return on Investment (ROI) based on the intervention.
