Ergonomics is frequently integrated into an organization’s Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) department. This can make it difficult for businesses to accurately judge the cost effectiveness of the investment in their ergonomics programs as they are more performance-based than the typical specification based EHS programs. Companies may also find it challenging to convert their reactive ergonomics processes - often looking at work related injury data – into a proactive program that addresses risk prior to injury occurrence.
