Buy-In: Justifying the Cost of Ergonomics

MSD injuries are still the number one injury in Ontario workplaces; more than 40% of workplace injuries are MSDs. As an employer, there is an inherent need to provide your workers with a safe and healthy work environment to prevent injury and disability – so why is it so hard to get buy-in for ergonomic initiatives? Partly because we don’t do a great job of calculating and communicating the Return on Investment for ergonomic initiatives in a way that shows how financially beneficial an ergonomic change can be.

Understanding how ergonomic initiatives can be financially beneficial for a company and knowing how to convey that message to management is important. Such initiatives have a huge potential to have a positive Return on Investment (ROI), and really just need to be “afforded” the opportunity to show what they can do.

Join us for our webinar to learn how to present ergonomic initiatives in a new light and convince upper management and/or ownership to provide the necessary funds to address the ergonomic concerns within your workplace.
