Ergonomic Wellness

Ergonomics is all about making the workplace user friendly. It improves productivity, quality of work, increases comfort, decreases fatigue, and ultimately, reduces risk of injury. Eighty percent of injured workers return to work within 6-8 weeks. Ten to 20% who do not return consume 80% of the costs. In addition, obese workers average 11.65 claims per 100 employees versus 5.8 claims per 100 employees at a normal weight, showing the pertinent relationship between wellness and ergonomics.  Our program led by a Certified Ergonomic Assessment Specialist (CEAS) includes:
 

  • In depth analysis of workspaces

  • High, medium, and low risk job categorization

  • Job description writing assistance to lay out physical requirements prior to application

  • Health coach integration with high risk job positions whose risk may be reduced by healthy lifestyle changes

  • Analysis of OSHA logs, workman's comp claims

  • Recommendations on risk reduction (equipment or habits)

  • In person or virtual employee training

  • Safety committee training

 
 

Leadership

Managers alone are 70% responsible for wellness program participation, according to Gallup. HPA has the strong belief that middle management has to not only be on board in order for the best wellness program results, but they have to have strong foundations of leadership in order to build a culture of trust.  Because of that, we are offering a variety of programs to help:
 

  • Training: Leadership Foundations for Wellness Program Success

  • Management focus groups

  • Leadership surveys

  • Leadership training (examples: constructive confrontation, managing change, diversity and inclusion, performance evaluation coaching, enhancing communication skills, and more)
