Clients Rave About Our Ergonomics Process Audit

Stephen Hemperly, Senior Industrial Hygienist, Occupational Health, Safety and Ergonomics Advisor, Western Digital

Using her outstanding expertise, Alison Heller-Ono completed a detailed and extremely useful audit of our office ergonomics process. The audit results and scorecard were based on a thorough examination of all elements of our ergonomics process and program. Alison interviewed managers from various business units receiving office ergonomics-related services, performed an office ergonomics employee engagement survey, and conducted walkthroughs of various office areas.

I cannot say enough about the significant value that Alison’s assessment of our ergonomics process has provided not only to EHS but also to those served by our office ergonomics process. Alison’s audit report has provided a roadmap that our organization is using to improve the quality of ergonomics-related services that we provide.

As an occupational health and safety professional (certified industrial hygienist and certified safety professional) with over 40 years of experience, I would say that the ergonomics process audit and report that we received from Alison is the best of any similar audit with which I am familiar in terms of its quality, thoroughness, and applicability.

How We've Helped Our Clients

How We've Helped Our Clients

Our unique and comprehensive audit process has given our clients the information they need to develop a comprehensive and successful ergonomics process resulting in:

  • Increased employee participation
  • Increased awareness of safe work practices
  • Reduced filing of WC claims through claim avoidance
  • Reduced WC and long term disability costs
  • Reduced litigation (WC and ADA)
  • Reduced lost time days and cases
  • Minimized non-occupational medical absence and FMLA time

Our ergonomics process audit of a major health care provider’s ergonomics process helped them identify missing links in their program, solidify their ergonomics purchase process and develop a preventive approach to injury management rather than waiting and reacting to employee claim filing.

We also designed and managed the County of Monterey’s ergonomics process for six years, reducing 95% of symptomatic employee reports from becoming workers’ compensation claims. This resulted in an estimated savings of over $15 million in claim avoidance and an ROI of $10.00 saved for every $1.00 invested. Read more here about this success story.

Backed by Research; Validated by Experts and Employers

Backed by Research; Validated by Experts and Employers

Based on the theory of macro ergonomics to address the sociotechnical aspects of work, our WIEP is backed by research emphasizing continuous improvement, quality process design, lean and participatory ergonomics, along with a focus on self-care and self-responsibility.

By encouraging employee participation and engagement from the beginning, employers can respond in a timely manner before claims develop.Requests are triaged to determine the best ergonomic analysis needed to address employee concerns. The evaluation engages the employee in the process giving them strategies and tactics to manage their concerns proactively. The evaluation provides the objective data necessary for the employer to determine appropriate engineering changes, administrative actions and products necessary for resolution.

Whether the employee simply wants to be sure they are set up correctly, are experiencing mild discomfort or the employee has a non-occupational medical condition, workers’ comp claim or even a physical impairment, the WIEP helps you to address employee concerns proactively and effectively saving you millions of dollars over time.
