Let's End This Debate Now -- Ergonomics Makes Money!

I just came across a PDF file of a presentation given by Hal W. Hendrick 12 years ago that shows how ergonomics not only protects the health and safety of workers on the job, but also how it can reap a windfall of cash for comapnies progressive enough to see the light!


He goes into exhaustive detail on how ergonomic interventions and smart design save employers tons of capital on H&S related costs, and makes them more profits due to the increase in productivity that human-centred design enables, again ... and again ... and again.

Next time a client pulls the "this is just gonna cost me money that I don't wanna spend" card, toss'em this report/link. It should change their tune mighty quick...!
