Which chair to buy? What makes a mouse ergonomic? Are ergonomic keyboards better?
Ergonomic programs make good business sense. Employers are losing money through absenteeism, presenteeism, and trips to the doctor or therapist breaking up the day, not to mention workers’ compensation costs.
The average “strain” costs around $57,462 in direct and indirect costs (OSHA, Safety Pays Calculator). If you need to maintain a 3% profit margin, your company will have to make $1,915,400 to cover the cost.
