ErgoScience applies the latest, state of the art computer vision technology to the field of ergonomics, changing a once cumbersome and time consuming process to an efficient, accurate, data-driven assessment.
The ErgoScience Advantage
The technology we employ uncovers and quantifies the ergonomic hazards and identifies the impact of the various body parts that are contributing to the hazard.
- Overall task hazard score
- Percent of task spent in hazardous positions
- Body parts contributing to hazard score
- Percent reduction that can be expected with interventions
Financial Impact of Ergonomics Programs
The US. General Accounting Office (GAO) examined 5 companies of varying sizes and industry sectors and found the average cost/claim after an ergonomic program intervention was reduced by up to $16,500. (1)
A case study involving 250 workers found the average payback period (ROI) for ergonomic interventions was less than one year. (2)
Another case study involving 200 employees showed the benefit-to-cost ratio was nearly 25 times greater than the cost of the initial ergonomic intervention (3).
