More than 90 percent of US workers now use computers, and about 40 percent of office workers work on their computers at least 4 hours a day. What does that mean? It means that there is a risk of musculoskeletal discomfort that can lead to workers getting injured. LEED Pilot Credit Ergonomics Strategy attempts to address the issues of poor ergonomics in office, retail, hospitals, and schools. This webinar will describe the development of a comprehensive ergonomics strategy and include several case studies from companies that significantly reduced workplace injuries, saving them tens-of-thousands of dollars.
