The Ergonomics Puzzle
Employers face a myriad of challenges in managing occupational injuries and illnesses.
Compliance Issues – Employer response is affected by government compliance.
Fiscal Issues – Employers face significant direct and indirect costs.
Productivity – Absenteeism hurts the bottom line.
Companies absorb all of the indirect cost of a workplace injury, while the financial impact of the accident’s direct cost depends on a company’s specific workers’ compensation program.
