Hear from a leading Ergonomist on how to build a proactive approach to MSD prevention into equipment design. The all-too-common reactive approach often doesn’t prevent costly injuries and results in further costly retrofits or redesign. Considering all the parts of the system, the limitations of the human, and the limitations of the equipment are key to successful equipment procurement, design, and implementation. In this session, we will discuss essential considerations and methodologies that are directly applicable to advancing your MSD prevention into the proactive realm.
