The Importance of Industrial Ergonomics Assessment
A study by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) found that a comprehensive ergonomics program at a manufacturing plant reduced the incidence of MSDs by 58% and the number of lost workdays by 72%.
Industrial work environments often involve physically demanding tasks, heavy machinery operation, and repetitive motions. Without proper ergonomics, employees can experience chronic pain, fatigue, and debilitating injuries, leading to decreased productivity and increased workers' compensation costs.
