Sponsored by the Industrial Hygiene Practice Specialty: The World Is Not Flatů Controlling Workplace Risk

Description: Solutions to curb the rising costs associated with work place injuries are numerous and varied. This session will introduce the concept of an Interventional Matrix to control workplace injuries and their associated costs. The program will lay-out a road map of potential intervention strategies that can complement an effective ergonomics program. Ergonomics is the foundation of the matrix however, in and of itself, an ergonomics program may not allow an organization to maximize its injury prevention initiatives. The session will focus on the concept of redundant and overlapping control strategies to help organizations reduce injuries and control costs.
