ErgoExpo Webinars

Root Cause Analysis & Improved Ergonomics
for Industrial Sprain/Strain Injury Reduction

June 20, 2018 | 2 p.m. ET / 11 a.m. PT
Duration: 60 minutes


Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), or soft tissue injuries, are the single largest category of workplace injury and are responsible for almost 30% of all workers’ compensation costs. On average, U.S.-based organizations spent 50 billion dollars on direct MSD costs. Beyond those hard dollars, lost worktime and productivity compound business losses.

Rachel Michael will explain why using traditional accident investigation methods to review sprain/strain type injuries may not be capturing the whole story. You’ll learn what aspects of a root cause analysis may differ when investigating soft tissue claims versus immediate and traumatic workplace injuries.

Webinar Takeaways

  • Apply improved ergonomics practices to reduce the most common type of injury

  • Identify more pointed root causes that can translate into improved design

  • Examine ways to reduce your future risk of injury

Attend and earn a Certificate of Completion you can use to apply for CEUs with BCSP directly or CoC points with BCPE directly
