ABOUT THE ERGONOMICS PLUS SAFETY EQUALS FOUNDATIONS FOR A SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS

Originally aired on December 9, 2015, this online seminar was broadcast exclusively to members of the Certified Professionals Directory.

In this one hour seminar Melissa Black, MS, CSP, CIH, discusses the major changes occurring in Healthcare and Insurance, as well as how the workforce itself and expected work tasks are also changing in the American workplace.

Demographics show that people are retiring later and staying in the workforce longer. Work hours have increased. These two factors have resulted in increasing risks and challenges. You must identify the issues before you can identify solutions.

Sustainability is not just about reducing waste in product and raw materials, it is about sustaining our workforce. This program discusses trends and solutions to help businesses reduce waste, insurance claims and pain for employee.
