Ergo Squad to Introduce Comfort Zone at the Risk and Insurance Management Society, Inc. (RIMS) Conference in Los Angeles
Office Workplace Discomfort Is Costly…Restore Employee Productivity, Reduce Risk with Comfort Zone™.
Denver, CO – (April 3, 2013) –Ergo Squad will be showcasing Comfort Zone™, their pro-active loss control and risk management program for the office workplace, at the RIMS conference in Los Angeles on April 22-24, 2013. Comfort Zone helps management identify and correct the factors that impede worker performance and put them at risk of occupational injuries. It prevents computer-use related injuries by correcting the causes of physical discomfort at the workstation.
Studies show that discomfort at the computer workstation can negatively impact productivity and also expose your company to potential safety risks. “If your organization has computer users, it’s extremely likely that many employees are experiencing physical discomfort,” explains Bill Pace, Director of Business Development, for Ergo Squad. “Given the aging workforce, continuing layoffs and budget cutbacks, it’s a perfect storm scenario that’s creating additional stress and discomfort for remaining employees who are tasked to do more with less.”
Workstation comfort has a direct impact on employee productivity. “Physical discomfort in the office workplace can result in work stoppage, higher error rates, increased workers compensation claims and rising health insurance costs,” Pace adds. “This RIMS audience understands that a comfortable yet productive work environment is vital to business success. We’re excited to show them how Comfort Zone can identify and manage critical environmental variables to enable their companies to reduce risk and realize sustainable cost reductions while enhancing productivity.”
Comfort Zone is delivered through Ergo Squad, a network of qualified ergonomists who can assess and advise employers on how to achieve greater efficiency and optimize productivity while safeguarding employee health to minimize risk to improve the bottom line.
Those attendees, who are ready to reduce costs, mitigate risk and increase productivity, should visit Booth #1960 to learn more about Comfort Zone and how it can benefit your organization.
“We’re a key resource for companies, EH&S staff and ergonomic consultants looking for an effective yet easy-to-use program to help solve common ergonomic and workstation issues quickly and cost-effectively,” says Pace. “With representatives in the U.S., Canada, the U.K. and German, we can help you find and implement the best solution for your needs.”
