48th Annual Conference of the Association of Canadian Ergonomists

This week we join the 48th Annual Conference of the Association of Canadian Ergonomists & 12th Annual International Symposium on Human Factors in Organizational Design and Management as a Platinum Sponsor in their quest for Organizing for High Performance.

ergoCentric has proudly sponsored this event for many years because it is consistent with our history of championing the use of ergonomists in the workplace. Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) cost organizations millions of dollars each year. When injuries occur, companies settle compensation claims but also suffer from many indirect costs, like lowered productivity and new employee training. To help avoid these stifling costs, we encourage organizations to utilize certified professional ergonomists in their workplace set-up decisions. Professional consultants are highly trained and offer long-term, customized solutions aimed at workplace-specific issues.

Ergonomists do not provide one-size-fits-all solutions, just like ergoCentric does not provide one-size-fits all seating solutions. Factors including details of the workplace, as well as personal factors such as age, weight, genetics, are taken into consideration. The result is a customized solution to reduce injuries and promote productivity.

People interact with each other, technology, equipment, tools and internal and external systems related to management of people, products, safety, health and processes. These interactions all contribute to the efficient and effective performance of the organization as a whole. This week’s conference explores research and practitioner contributions from multiple disciplines who are involved in the investigation, design and implementation of these interactions to improve the performance, safety and well-being of people, systems and organizations. Visit booth 5 & 6 to see how ergoCentric can assist with providing the optimal seating and height adjustable work surface solutions.
