Can changing one or two things about the way someone does his or her job lead to savings for a company? And lead to a safer place and higher morale? Thirty-two special companies worldwide say yes. They are all contenders in the prestigious Ergo Cup Award competition and will be demonstrating their solutions at the Applied Ergonomics Conference, March 12-15, 2007 in Dallas, Texas. Only 3 can win.

Companies as diverse in operations and products as Boeing, Bridgestone, Dell, Delta Airlines, GE, Honda, J&J, Mary Kay, Harley Davidson, Toyota, Universal Orlando, and Sunrise Medical can prove that making process improvements from an ergonomic perspective, no matter how small, reaps big benefits.

The nationally recognized Ergo Cup, presented by IIE (www.iienet.org) and sponsored by The Ergonomics Center of North Carolina (www.theergonomicscenter.com) , provides an opportunity for companies to highlight successful ergonomic activities. 2007 marks the ninth year of this competition.

Using ergonomic tools to assess processes, they fix problem areas, document the results and develop training programs to train others in operating equipment properly. At the conference, they will excitedly tell you about their solutions to challenges in lifting heavy equipment, moving objects multiple times, and literally bending over backwards and twisting. There's even a Shrek costume re-do that will wow you."    (Continued via FinanceVisor)    [Ergonomics Resources]
