Ergonomics

Improving Performance

US companies spend $62B annually in direct costs for nonfatal workplace injuries.1 Of these, musculoskeletal disorders (MSD) are the single, largest category of injuries in the workplace, and account for ~30% of all worker’s compensation costs.2

By employing practical, effective ergonomic best practices, we have helped our clients significantly reduce their lost-time, MSD‑related, injuries. We can also help you improve performance in areas including productivity, turnover, employee engagement, job satisfaction, and workers compensation cost containment—a quality ergonomics program goes hand-in-hand with all these areas.

At Apex, our dedicated ergonomics staff are ready to assess risk and design solutions that lower your operational costs, increase your productivity, and provide a competitive edge for your organization in the marketplace.

To provide optimal value, we tailor each project to your needs with our team of Certified Professional Ergonomists (CPE), Certified Industrial Ergonomists (CIE), Certified Safety Professionals (CSP), and staff consultants who can meet any level of expertise required.
