ANN ARBOR, Mich., Nov. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- "Four Steps to Deploying Your Ergonomics Process" is the fourth in a series of new e-books about the steps required to build and sustain a successful ergonomics process. These steps make up Humantech's Engagement Model—a framework for companies to follow when starting, improving, or reinvigorating a workplace ergonomics process. Certified professional ergonomists Walt Rostykus and Winnie Ip explain step four in the model, Deployment.
The previous three e-books in this series provided best practices for preparing (Gaps & Fit), designing (Foundation), and getting commitment for an ergonomic improvement process (Leadership). Deployment addresses the doing phase, the phase in which your ergonomic improvement process is launched and begins to find, fix, check, and sustain the reduction of musculoskeletal disorder (MSDs). There may be many steps within deployment, but following a basic four will ensure success. The first of these, preparing people for success, means ensuring that the people involved understand all aspects of the ergonomic improvement process, understand the common goal and tracking measures established, know their role and the actions expected of them, are familiar with the roles of other support people, are able to perform their activities correctly and consistently, and have the time available to perform these activities. This e-book and the others in this series are available for download from Humantech's website.ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ABOUT HUMANTECH: For over 35 years, global companies have relied on Humantech for workplace improvements.
