  • Over 300 Free Ergonomics Resources!
    In 2012, Liberty Mutual’s Workplace Safety Index found that overexertion (excessive lifting, pushing, pulling, holding, carrying, throwing) was the number one cause of disabling injuries in America. Also, repetitive motion (repeated stress or strain) was determined to be the seventh leading cause of disabling injuries. Together, overexertion and repetitive motion accounted for over 30% of the total cost of all disabling injuries in the United States! With one third of all disabling injury costs being associated with these two types of claims, employers should place a high priority on preventing them. Ergonomics is a proven method of reducing both overexertion and repetitive motion injuries. Below are links to over 300 ergonomics resources.
