Why Industry Cannot Afford Ergonomic Injuries Right Now

Workplaces continue to be impacted by COVID-19 with impacts to production, sales, staff, remote work and more. It’s a difficult time for many Canadian workplaces and their employees as they navigate the ‘new normal’. During times like these it can be easy to put ergonomics on the backburner; you have other priorities to focus on, but maybe now is the time to push forwards with ergonomics, not step back.

First and foremost, ergonomic injuries (MSDs) are expensive, costing employers in Canada an estimated $22 billion annually. During times of economic uncertainty businesses need every bit of revenue going back into their business for positive change, not paying for injuries. Spending time to address your ergonomic ‘low-hanging fruit’ can be a small expense with a big return.

Join us for our monthly webinar to learn what steps you can take NOW to help keep risk of injury low, despite the challenges that COVID has thrown at us.
