Industrial journalist, TR Cutler recently interviewed ergonomists, Mark Heidebrecht and Sam Bradbury of Ergonomics International in the current issue of Manufacturing Outlook magazine. Read the article here.
Bradbury and Heidebrecht discussed a cost-effective evidence‐based risk analysis software suite. Ergonomics International’s Evidence‐Based Risk Analysis Software Suite utilizes standardized tools which have high validity and reliability. These tools provide management with real-time data to make evidence‐based decisions, yet data is simple enough for ergonomic, safety, occupational health, Lean Manufacturing, and Six-Sigma professionals to understand and apply.
Heidebrecht shared, “Traditional ergonomic analysis tools may overestimate risk sending companies down trails to fixing hazards that are not the true high risks. This includes personal risk factors that may be more involved in certain musculoskeletal injuries that the company takes on as a hazard that is not really a hazard.”
Ergonomics International responded to new COVID-19 challenges with an Employer Management System (EMS) for abatement strategies. The cost-effective SaaS solution provides employers with necessary tools to identify at-risk employees, track those with COVID-19 immunity, and recognize potential carriers.
Employers need to protect themselves and their employees against COVID-19. Businesses, schools, and municipalities can now monitor trends, hotspots in the facility, build exposure plans, and simply keep excellent records of monitoring and mitigating COVID-19 issues in real-time. The affordable system can be purchased here.
