Ergonomic Assessments Prevent Injuries, Boost Productivity, and Enhance Profitability for Michigan Businesses
An Ergonomic Assessment Could Save Your Michigan Company Big Money
According to Statista, overexertion and other preventable movement-related injuries cost American industries nearly $17 billion in 2022, not counting the staggering cost of absenteeism. In 2020, the average number of days employees were absent from work due to workplace injuries ranged from 10 to 16 depending on industry.
Plus, ensuring your staff is safe and healthy improves productivity, quality, and morale. And it’s just the right thing to do.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that Michigan’s rate of non-fatal workplace injuries was “significantly higher” than the U.S. average in recent years, with approximately 3% of all Michigan employees losing work because of preventable workplace injuries or accidents.
How confident are you that your factory floor, offices, and employees’ remote workplaces are set up optimally for injury prevention and comfort?
