Abstract :

Managing a global office ergonomics program can be challenging due to the number of employees, time zones, languages, and cultural and regulatory differences. Staffs are also working outside of corporate offices and many companies have not established a system to address the ergonomic concerns in remote and home office. In addition, corporate environmental, safety and health teams are being asked to do more with less to stretch the resources that they do have available. This presentation will outline a three tired approach which helps companies streamline their ergonomic program to cost effectively manage employees around the world sitting in corporate offices or telecommuting. Leveraging technology can allow evaluation requests can be tracked, evaluation reports completed, employees educated and provide real time results. This presentation will show actual results that demonstrate that the program costs can be controlled, time can be saved, risks reduced, and injuries mitigated. At the end of this presentation, attendees will: Understand the challenges of managing a global ergonomics program; Have a list of strategies to efficiently and cost effectively manage global ergonomic programs; See technology solutions which can help to streamline any ergonomic program.
