Abstract Share this page

Good ergonomics programs have cut workers compensation costs an average of 60% and up to 90% in some cases. The book on which this summary is based provides several examples, including both bottom line results and descriptions of the process of how these companies got there. One brief example is as follows:

The above graph shows total workers’ comp costs for one division of a major manufacturer that employed roughly 4000 people in eight facilities. The division estimated that it saved about $12 million dollars in the first five years compared to the projected costs if they had done nothing. The investment costs for equipment purchases, maintenance modifications, and meeting time were not carefully tracked, but were certainly no more than $1 million, and probably much less.
