AIHce Ergonomics Symposium

The American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) Ergonomics Committee will sponsor the “Ergonomics Symposium: Making a Business Case for Ergonomics (and Other Health and Safety Programs)” on Sunday, June 1, 2008, at the American Industrial Hygiene Conference and Exposition (AIHce) in Minneapolis.

The symposium will use economic criteria to demonstrate the development of the business case of ergonomics. Attendees will learn to describe successful methods to justify ergonomic programs; identify economic benefits of ergonomic interventions, design practices and programs; compute economic returns and costs in a health and safety environment; and create a business case template for ergonomics and other health and safety programs. Participants have the opportunity to earn 1.0 IH CM point, 0.8 CEU and 0.8 COC.
