Strategic Considerations for Developing an Ergonomics Program -AND- Physical Demand Gap Analysis: The Bridge Between High-Performance Workforce and Peak-Safety Workplace

Because no two companies are identical, it is important to avoid relying on generic or boilerplate ergonomics programs and to strategically align your ergonomics program elements to fit your organization’s culture and needs. Using experience gleaned over decades of working with unique circumstances, our presentation will highlight many specific situations and discuss various customized program solutions that have proven successful. We will discuss 3 directions for starting ergonomics program and 8 key components for existing programs to use as a “self-check” tool to identify areas of needed improvement. Be prepared to connect your company’s specific situation to customized solutions that will result in a highly successful ergonomics process.

Physical Demand Gap Analysis - The Bridge Between High-Performance Workforce and Peak-Safety Workplace

In the early 1990’s, Title I of the ADA gave us the mandate to examine job title essential functions, so we could better bridge the gaps between our workforce and their work tasks. This mandate materialized in advanced Physical Demand Analysis (PDA). By gathering job-specific data, we can better find leading indicators between our work and workforce before injuries arise. Through streamlined PDA screening, we can eliminate exposures when 1) onboarding new talent, 2) evaluating incumbent talent, and 3) recovering RTW talent. Learn how these time-tested methods fit neatly into a Lean Continuous Improvement model. The results are both superior workforce performance and peak workplace safety.
