As you reduce the risks of Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs) by reducing the risk factors associated with a non-ergonomic design you also reduce the costs of compensation you will be paying out. Out of every three dollars paid for workman’s compensation, one is from MSDs.
If your employees are in pain or fatigued due to uncomfortable working conditions merely adding a more ergonomic design can make a massive difference to the quality of work. Plus, when employees see that their comfort and best interest is kept in mind, they are more likely to care about their work.
If you and your employees can work in comfort with better posture you may find your productivity is increased. Making sure your employees are comfortable while they work makes them happier to do their job while most ergonomics also make workplaces more efficient.
As employees begin to notice their employer focusing on their safety and health, they are more likely to want to engage. Creating a comfortable environment can help reduce absenteeism and improve morale as well.
