ERGONOMIC HAZARD ASSESSMENT 2 Costs can be astronomical when related to workplace injuries, and it tends to hurt the proverbial company pocketbook even more when these injuries can be prevented. In order for this to occur, there needs to be what organizations refer to as an ergonomic hazard assessment. Most companies that are ergonomically sound utilize these assessments to make the workplace more productive and prevent less MSDs. This can be implemented by trained individuals in house or by a third party. These individuals take into account and focus on injury prevention solutions by creating a program that is effective, simple and by all means economical. Challenges can be very critical to the office side of the business; however the industrial arena can be just as formidable. Improper training is a crucial cause, as well as the lack of understanding as to what is required to do the job therefore creating a risk potential for injury. Additionally, this can be a catalyst in getting the employees back into the workforce. Another unnoticeable area that can be addressed is the simple fact that there is a lack of participation of other departments within the workplace. A positive approach would be a full integration to surmount these challenges.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
