Industrial Journalist TR Cutler Reviews Evidence-Based Ergonomic Risk Analysis Software for EHS Professionals

Industrial journalist, TR Cutler interviewed Mark Heidebrecht of Ergonomics International about how Ergonomics International helps EHS (Environmental Health and Safety) managers on solving the right problem by providing them with data for setting priorities and the best allocation of resources. The software is an evidence-based approach based on epidemiological data. The article appears in the recent issue of Quality Digest.

According to Heidebrecht, “Musculoskeletal injuries typically comprise 70 percent of a company’s injuries. A successful safety program must include an effective ergonomic process. Not all musculoskeletal disorders are work related, which is why we developed a tool for EHS leaders to utilize evidence-based peer-reviewed research that quantifies risk factors associated with job tasks. Also considered is the potential interaction of non-occupational factors in the development of musculoskeletal disorders.”

EHS professionals now have access to one of the world’s largest ergonomic libraries, including one of the largest occupational epidemiology datasets to help them make the most informed decisions. Compiled and owned by Ergonomics International, the dataset comes from individually reviewed and cross-referenced peer-reviewed data. It also includes government or third-party data for use in risk cost calculations if the client does not want to include their data or do not have the data required.

Quality Digest magazine presents all facets of quality, including metrology, Six Sigma, lean, inspection, testing, SPC, software, and international standards. Quality Digest offers more editorial coverage of these standards than any other quality magazine or web site.
