Sponsored by the Ergonomics Branch of the Industrial Hygiene and Construction Practice Specialties: Can Ergonomics Effect Efficiency and Productivity in the Construction Industry - Is it a Fallacy?

Description: The construction workforce is aging at an alarming rate with fewer skilled tradesmen entering the workforce. Profit margins are thinner than ever. Through research and analysis conducted at CNA, we have gained an understanding of jobsite ergonomic exposures, specific job tasks, and workforce limitations within the construction trades that impact productivity, efficiency, and risk factors. This session focuses on all these areas and the methods used to enhance production, efficiency, and reduce risk factors with our construction clients.
