National Ergonomics Conference & ErgoExpo

VelocityEHS is exhibiting and speaking at the National Ergonomics Conference & ErgoExpo on November 2 – 4, 2021 in Las Vegas.

  • Visit our booth #501 to learn how to reach your ergonomics goals faster. VelocityEHS certified experts will be available to answer your questions and demonstrate our industrial and office ergonomics solutions.
  • Attend our sessions:
    • "Industrial Ergonomics Case Studies: The Evolution of Ergonomics Job Analysis" on November 2 at 9 a.m. PST
      • Description: This workshop will provide you with the necessary tools to kick-start or revive your ergonomics process with a focus on remote capabilities for each step of your ergonomics journey. Participants will be introduced to both qualitative and quantitative tools to evaluate work areas and to design engineering changes to maintain a healthy workforce. This workshop will also provide insight on the future of ergonomics job analysis – how the use of wearables and motion capture technology will impact the role of the ergonomics practitioner, with a focus on doing so from afar.
    • “Are You Adding or Reducing Costs for Your Company? Are You Estimating the Financial Impact of Your Ergonomics Efforts?” on November 3 at 11:00 a.m. PST
      • Description: Determining the financial impact of ergonomics interventions (single engineering improvements) and initiatives (system for managing ergonomics) to stakeholders is critical. To cost justify initiatives, EHS professionals use five approaches. A model was developed using the approaches to calculate the financial impact of an ergonomics intervention and initiative. Learn how to calculate the: financial impact of a proposed/implemented ergonomics intervention, financial impact of an ergonomics initiative, cost of known MSD risk, cost of unknown MSD risk, and cost of relying on a reactive ergonomics initiative
    • “Applying Quality Improvement Tools for Problem Solving in Ergonomics” on November 4 at 9:00 a.m. PST
      • Description: Current safety management systems, like ISO 45001, are based on well-established quality management systems. Studying quality management can provide useful insights into methods for better safety and ergonomics programs. Quality experts have developed and refined an extensive array of problem-solving tools, yet only a few of these are routinely used in ergonomics. This session discusses how six of these quality tools can be applied in ergonomics. Examples from a variety of industrial settings are used to demonstrate the use of each tool. The examples are followed by tips on when the tool is most useful and potential limitations when using the tool for ergonomics.
