The Ergonomic Assist Systems & Equipment (EASE) Product Group of MHI, recently hosted a webinar, 'The Bad Ergonomics of Order Fulfillment in Distribution Center' and is releasing the presentation online.. The webinar, presented by EASE chairman Jim Galante, covered an overview of ergonomic issues facing businesses today, the aging and obese workforce and potential solutions to these issues that will result in a more efficient operation for your business. The solutions presented in the webinar highlight the numerous ergonomic assist systems and equipment available to ease in the movement of materials from one location to another. There are many different tools available to improve the processes in any facility, and it is important to note that there is not one single solution that works for all situations and it is likely that more than one solution may be appropriate. Many solutions are manufactured and sold by MHI and EASE member companies.
EASE members promote the practice of good ergonomics in the workplace by providing solutions across a broad spectrum of applications and industries. Activities include presentations at various industry events and development of non-commercial training materials. EASE also engages and collaborates with NIOSH and the academic community to enrich the group and enhance presentations and training materials.
