Case Study 1

In a prospective study using the Worksite International Ergonomics Process (WIEP) over a 5 year period from 2009‐2013 with a large government entity of 4000 computer users, our process resulted in the following:
Using an early symptom reporting process helped avoid approximately 1084 claims from being filed and a projected savings of $15.6 million.
Only 5 of every 100 employees evaluated ever filed a WC claim.
Actual WC claims reported declined 45% compared to the prior 5 years.
Return on investment (ROI) for the WIEP was $10.00 saved for every $1.00 invested.

Case Study 2

A small publishing company with 75 employees took an aggressive preventive approach to managing early signs and symptoms reported by employees over a 2 year period. They reported similar results in savings of $10.66 for every dollar invested by using the preventive evaluation services of Worksite International, Inc.

Case Study 3

In a 3 year study of diverse businesses across various industries who invested in the Worksite International Ergonomics Process using an ergonomics task force, the results are clear:
The development of the Ergonomics Task Force demonstrates itself as a vital strategy to control workers’ compensation losses.
The process acts as a cost-savings strategy for the prevention and management of CTDs.
Benefits improve with time, administrative and financial commitment to the process and are best justified through benchmarking and good record keeping.
Improvement is noted in the following areas:
Increase in awareness of CTDs throughout the organization,
Integration of in-house expertise as an accepted management practice,
A majority of employees demonstrate safer work habits,
Early reporting of signs and symptoms
Better disability management by front line supervisors and management
Improved multi-level communication and improved employee morale for the affected groups.
The Ergonomics process including an ergonomics task force demonstrates itself as a flexible tool capable of achieving significant measurable outcomes.
