Don’t forget to sign up for the upcoming Ergonomic Seminar by Optimal Performance Consultants at the Herman Miller training centre/showroom.

Date; May 14th 9 am to 11am. 

Breakfast will be served

Title: When, Why, How: When Science is Applied to Office Ergonomics an ROI Occurs

Discussion; Jane Sleeth will present this 2 hour seminar to attendees in an effort to address the often encountered bias against the use of ergonomics in some workplaces.  This bias is often due to a mistaken belief that ergonomics becomes a cost obligation with little tangible benefit on the part of Facility Managers, Real Estate, Human Resources and OH&S Professionals.

Jane will use recent and on going case studies garnered over the last 23 years in office and administrative type environments to clearly show how the use of qualified, high level Ergonomic experts will lead and should always lead to a Return on the Investment over a reasonable period of time.

Jane will describe when, why and how the use of qualified Ergonomists (which includes experts who do not represent lines of furniture, seating, equipment) is best used in the work environment; why to expect the Ergonomist to use only evidence based standards (Ministry of Labour for Ontario) in their analysis and how the Ergonomist should make recommendations with a capital cost only when based on this analysis and on written internal furniture, seating and equipment standards.
