Did you know the estimated direct costs of work-related injuries due to overexertion involving an outside source was $15.1 billion in 2012? That represents one quarter of the total workplace injury direct costs (Liberty Mutual, 2014). These injuries account for about 30% of lost time injuries. Traditional ergonomic methods can be very effective in preventing these injuries, but they are often time consuming and fail to capture everything about a worker’s job. New wearable technologies can collect many types of data efficiently and accurately for use by ergonomists in the field.
In his presentation at the upcoming WM Symposia, Wearable Ergonomics – Using Wearable Sensors to Evaluate Exoskeletons, Matt Marino discusses technologically-advanced wearable ergonomic sensors and their groundbreaking ability to improve employee safety, personal health and organizational operations.
