Ergonomics

Lower Your Worker's Compensation Costs!

Many organizations recognize that ergonomics represents a solution to a significant component of workers' compensation costs. It is not uncommon to find 40-60% of the injury costs to be associated with ergonomic-related disorders, also known as musculoskeletal disorders (MSD). We help our clients to identify high risk areas, develop ergonomics solutions, and make a positive impact on their worker's compensation costs.

Ergonomics Evaluation, Training and Program Development
The Hilgeman Group can provide a wide range of ergonomic evaluation and organizational services. Professionals with backgrounds in medical and engineering principles can evaluate your workplace for ergonomic hazards.

Risk factors for ergonomic disorders include:
  1. Repetition
  2. Forces that Exceed Safe Ranges
  3. Awkward Postures
  4. Contact Stress
  5. Vibration

OSHA's Ergonomics Standard?

OSHA's approach to ergonomic disorders was to pass a regulation that was administratively very cumbersome. This rule (29 CFR 1910.900) was dropped as a result of opposition by business and industry. OSHA has been issuing industry specific guidelines and using their general duty clause 5(a)(1) to cite employers that fail to comply or address ergonomics in their workplaces.

The Hilgeman Group can assist with all aspects of ergonomics control
including:
