Ergonomics case study: Car parts manufacturer realizes benefits of PE program

An Ontario manufacturer opened its doors to researchers who helped implement a participatory ergonomics (PE) program to improve the musculoskeletal health of workers. The company has since learned that the PE program saved it almost a quarter-of-a-million dollars — and in the most unexpected place.


Reducing MSD hazards in the workplace

A guide to successful participatory ergonomics programs
In participatory ergonomics (PE) programs, workers, supervisors and other workplace parties jointly identify and address work-related hazards. PE can help reduce low-back injuries and other musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), resulting in fewer workers’ compensation claims and lost days from work. This booklet, based on a systematic review by IWH researchers, outlines six key steps that have been shown to contribute to the success of a PE program.
