Virtual Think Tank Series
The State of Ergonomic Injuries: Today and Tomorrow
Thursday, April 29, 2021 • 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM (ET)
The safety innovators at DORN Companies are thrilled to invite you to join other top executives and safety professionals from major companies across the U.S. for a LIVE Think Tank discussion. This special session will include conversations with your peers in EHS on one of the hottest topics in safety: ergonomic injuries.
Did you know?
- 86% of office employees report having experienced pain or discomfort because of their workstations or equipment
- 41% percent of workers report experiencing neck pain because of their workstations
- $635 billion is spent by employers on work-related musculoskeletal issues alone
Work is changing, and so is safety.
Employers in every industry are looking ahead to a changing landscape when it comes to work: An aging workforce, more employees working remotely, and new external stressors will all play a role in ergonomic safety. As a result, many safety leaders are preparing for new challenges and bolstering their safety programming with an increased focus on ergonomics. With workers’ compensation costs always a major concern for safety leaders, a single claim can drain tens of thousands of dollars from an employer’s budget, not to mention the operational obstacles that come with absenteeism and reduced productivity from chronic ergonomic pain.
We want your insights
We hope you’ll join us for an in-depth conversation and share your experiences with ergonomic solutions and safety programming. We’ll also reveal new case studies from major employers that demonstrate how proactive safety programming can curb injury rates and help businesses forge a positive future for their employees, their enterprises and their bottom lines. In this session, we invite you to share your experiences and ideas around:
- Fresh ideas for tackling ergonomic risk factors and reducing injury rates
- How to mitigate the risks that come with increasing work-related and everyday stress
- Addressing ergonomic risks related to digitalization and growing use of human-machine interfaces
