Become the go-to chair expert as a CASp. The only course to offer a structured approach to chair assessment, selection, and fit in the workplace!
Every Employer Needs a Qualified Chair Expert
Chairs are a primary risk in the modern office contributing to musculoskeletal disorders.
Seated work injuries cost employers an average of $40,000 per workers' compensation claim according to the Workers' Compensation Insurance Rating Bureau. Those claims are likely associated with poorly adjusted, old, or failing office chairs.
Your ergonomic chairs are the most important tool in the workplace, aside from the computer contributing to employee productivity. Yet, they are the most misunderstood, undervalued, and poorly managed assets in the workplace. Employers fail to recognize the chair life cycle of keep, repair, replace, and fit.
Becoming a Chair Assessment Specialist means you will assist in the management of your organization’s chair assets, help companies to manage their chairs, or assist individuals with proper chair fit and use. Our unique and proven approach reduces organizational risk, minimizes worker’s comp claims for seated workers, and helps create a comfortable, healthy, and productive workplace.
