Technology in the workplace continues to evolve every day. Companies are harnessing the power of these new technologies to create a smarter work environment that reduces the risk of injury to their workers. Through the use of wearable technology, employers have proactively reduced common musculoskeletal injuries resulting in lower workers’ compensation costs, decreased lost-time days, and improved productivity.
In our upcoming webinar, “Decreasing High-Risk Behaviors with Wearable Technology Devices,” on on Wednesday, April 21st at 3 p.m. EST, Kelson Wann, MS, ATC, will discuss recent case study results from a distribution center that implemented an innovative wearable technology program to reduce the frequency and duration of employee high-risk angles and postures.
In the one-hour education webinar, Wann will discuss:
Program elements and rollout including device identification
Data analysis and results
On-going study implications for improving worker safety
Strategies for implementation within your unique work environments
Wann, an Athletic Trainer by background, is a subject-matter expert in the application of wearable ergonomics, specifically wearable technology focusing on wearable sensors, exoskeletons, and exosuit devices. He has worked with numerous organizations to successfully implement wearable device programs to address employee safety concerns.
