Mark Heidebrecht and Sam Bradbury, partners at Ergonomics International were recently profiled by industrial journalist, TR Cutler. Read the feature in Manufacturing Outlook ezine.
Bradbury and Heidebrecht discussed their cost-effective evidence‐based risk analysis software suite. Ergonomics International’s Evidence‐Based Risk Analysis Software Suite utilizes standardized tools which have high validity and reliability. These tools provide management with real-time data to make evidence‐based decisions, yet data is simple enough for ergonomic, safety, occupational health, Lean Manufacturing, and Six-Sigma professionals to understand and apply.
Heidebrecht shared, “Traditional ergonomic analysis tools may overestimate risk sending companies down trails to fixing hazards that are not the true high risks. This includes personal risk factors that may be more involved in certain musculoskeletal injuries that the company takes on as a hazard that is not really a hazard.”
Bradbury noted, “Using epidemiological standards and processes, the SaaS system evaluates the actual task from multiple empirical levels that have been shown to be a hazard. This includes from the employee, epidemiological data on causation, and using standardized peer reviewed tools to cross validate decision making. The system then produces quantile levels of risk so that companies can determine where they are making effective changes, how much risk is greater than the normal population and what the potential cost associated with the risk will be if mitigation does not occur.”
Ergonomics International responds to the new COVID-19 challenges with an Employer Management System (EMS) for abatement strategies. The SaaS solution provides employers with necessary tools to identify at-risk employees, track those with COVID-19 immunity, and recognize potential carriers.
Employers need to protect themselves and their employees against COVID-19. Businesses, schools, and municipalities can now monitor trends, hotspots in the facility, build exposure plans, and simply keep excellent records of monitoring and mitigating COVID-19 issues in real-time. The affordable system can be purchased here.
