Have you been denied money for ergonomic improvements? Has your strategic ergonomic plan been unsupported by upper management? If the answer is Yes, you are not talking the language of business, known as Finance or “Show-Me-The-Money”!

Knowing how to capture the financial benefits of your ergonomic initiatives and the ability to perform a cost benefit analysis is essential in today’s business climate to demonstrate how ergonomic solutions affect your business’ bottom-line. This webinar will introduce you to the data sources available within your company to develop a comprehensive cost benefit analysis. Several real-world case studies will be used to demonstrate the concepts and approach.
