One of our dearest clients, Jane Sleeth at Optimal Performance Consultants Inc. works in the dynamic world of Ergonomics and Accessibility. Being that one of our own staff is wheelchair bound, we are always interested in what Jane has to say and when opportunity knocks where Jane’s expertise and professional skills coincide with our own business targets, we like to cross promote any endeavor to help.
To that end, Jane has an workshop coming up on June 25th, 2014 entitled “When Science is applied to office ergonomic and ROI occurs.”
Who should attend: Facility Managers, Building Owners, Human Resources Managers, OH&S professionals, Purchasing, Procurement, Interior Designers and Architects
Jane Sleeth will present this 2 hour seminar to attendees in an effort to address the frequently encountered bias against the use of ergonomics in some workplaces. This bias is often due to a mistaken belief that ergonomics becomes a cost obligation with little tangible benefit on the part of Facility Managers, Real Estate, Human Resources and OH&S Professionals.
Jane ill use recent and on going studies garnered over the last 23 years in office and administrative type environments to clearly show how to use of qualified, high level Ergonomics experts will lead and should always lead to a Return on the Investment over a reasonable period of time.
Jane will describe when, why and how the use of qualified Ergonomists (which includes experts who do not represent lines of furniture, seating, equipment) is best used in the work environment; why to expect the Ergonomist to use only evidence based standards (Ministry of Labour for Ontario) in their analysis and how the Ergonomist should make recommendations with a capital cost only when based on this analysis and on written internal furniture, seating and equipment standards.
