To help in its second project, ASSE's Ergonomics Task Force is asking ASSE members for assistance in an initiative to collect information on how to measure and demonstrate the value of ergonomics in the workplace. This project has grown out of conversations with National Advisory Committee on Ergonomics (NACE) leadership, which has identified the need for this kind of information as it advances the ergonomics issue at the national level.
Specifically, ASSE is seeking information on cost justification and value analysis for ergonomic improvement efforts and would like to gather information that answers the following questions:
The information collected will be reviewed for possible development of a set of tools or resources for use by ASSE members and safety professionals in evaluating effective workplace ergonomics improvements.
Please forward your answers to Dave Heidorn, Manager of Government Affairs and Policy at ASSE at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Or, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact any of the Ergo Task Force Members
