“So, You Think Your Workplace is Ergonomic? Think Again!”
Alison Heller-Ono was the featured speaker at our Central Coast Human Resources Association meeting this July, 2017. Alison is an engaging and excellent speaker. She solicited questions before her presentation and solicited many questions from the audience. Her presentation on Ergonomics was well organized and supported by a very descriptive and compelling PowerPoint presentation. It is clear that Alison is an expert in her field. She would be an excellent resource for any organization who wants to be proactive in preventing workplace injuries. Alison is also clearly respected in this field. She invited representatives from Palace Business Solutions, Cal Ergonomics and Plantronics who brought samples of their ergonomic products for our membership to become more familiar with options available. Alison was a pleasure to work with and I would recommend her to any organization as a speaker or consultant.

Thanks for your presentation tonight. I've been interested in ergonomics since 1995 and make it a part of my practice. I loved hearing your thoughts around the biggest challenges in today's workspaces. I'll check out your website and resource section, too!

Regarding WI Ergonomics Trainings:
“I continue to receive only good feedback from the Hayward Team about the training. As I mentioned yesterday, I’ve been to several trainings on this topic in my life and I really enjoyed the Hands-on On-the-Job training you gave vs. sitting through tenths of slides for two hours of theory. We will definitely keep you in mind if any questions or future needs. Cheers!”.
Carlos F. Manager, Pilot Facilities and Operations
“Alison is a lively presenter, not inclined to preach or dwell on her own capabilities and services. She is wholly dedicated to making clear what is right before our eyes - that the wellbeing of people and their work can be deliberately improved with application of straightforward principles and methods in selecting chairs and furniture for working, and that life cycle expenses and risks are impressively less than doing without. We would recommend her without reservation.”
