Get Ready for AEC 2018!

The 2018 Applied Ergo Conference (AEC) is set to run March 26 – 29, 2018 at the Hilton in Atlanta, Georgia. As always, the Darcor team is ready to be inspired by the exciting keynote speakers and workshops. For more than a decade, the Global Organization of Ergonomics (GOErgo) has been bringing ergonomic considerations to the forefront for businesses. More than ever, organizations have become more focused on injury prevention and reducing workplace related fatigue. AEC continues to lead the charge on proactive ergonomics assessment and solutions. Darcor has been proud to be part of the ergonomics progression and has developed the Economics of Ergonomics Guide which will help organizations truly understand the financial risks associated with workplace overexertion injuries and how to assess and reduce that risk by implementing proactive ergonomics programs. As AEC 2018 approaches, the Darcor team has compiled a list of the workshops and speakers we’re most looking forward to see:
Economics of Ergonomics Guide Now Available to Support Cost Justification for Crucial Ergonomic Solutions

Economics of Ergonomics Guide Now Available to Support Cost Justification for Crucial Ergonomic Solutions

Workplace ergonomics thought leader, Darcor Casters and Wheels, is pleased to introduce the Economics of Ergonomics Guide. The free 14-page download will help organizations truly understand the financial risks associated with workplace overexertion injuries and how to assess and reduce that risk by implementing proactive ergonomics programs. Overexertion injuries, including those related to pushing and pulling, are the costliest of workplace injuries. It is critical to manage the financial risk of workplace overexertion injuries in the manual material handling industry. It is estimated that organizations can expect to save $460 USD a year per worker by ensuring that push pull peak forces are consistently at an acceptable level. The Economics of Ergonomics Guide covers a variety of crucial areas that all organizations involved in manual material handling should be well-versed on to ensure reduced risk of workplace overexertion injuries and related costs.
