What You Will Learn

BOSTONtec is known in the industry as a leader in ergonomic height-adjustable workstations. When working with clients we often receive questions how much productivity can be gained by applying ergonomic principles and how an ergonomically sound work environment can contribute to the bottom line. These and other important questions deserve detailed answers that are specific to the clients business and work processes. This is why BOSTONtec has partnered with the Ergonomics Center of North Caroline State University to conduct an ergonomic study that focuses on work processes that are typical for the material handling and manufacturing environment. Thanks to this in-depth study BOSTONtec now has definitive field-specific research that offers the answers our customers need, using the very same workstation designs that can be found in the material handling and manufacturing industry.

The study forms the basis of future recommendations for an efficient and ergonomic workstation set-up. A focus on ergonomics can improve productivity and accuracy, while also reducing repetitive motion workplace injuries. These findings can be applied to a variety of different tasks performed by multiple industries.

Attendees can expect to take away several guidelines to improve their work environments and gain deeper understanding of their organizations work practices. The seminar will explain in detail the research conducted by the Ergonomics Center of North Carolina State University and how the findings can be applied to the situations found in many of today’s industrial work environments. Leave with valuable recommendations on workstation design, insights into Lean Analysis of Motion Studies, as well as Return-on-Investment calculations.

Key Takeaways

- Gains in Productivity when applying ergonomic principles to work station design
- Lean Analysis: How to increase Value-added versus non-value-added motions
- Ergonomic Risk: How a workstation set-up can lower the risk of worker injuries
- ROI: Using the results of an ergonomic study to calculate the profitability of an investment in ergonomics
