Cost Calculator

Organizations frequently cite the perceived cost of ergonomics programs and solutions as a barrier to implementation.

We have developed a cost-benefit calculator that PSHFES is proud to offer for free download.



Well we are off to a good year of activities. We recently visited the Filson Factory in Seattle and had enough people for two tours. Our next event at Copa Contract Showroom with host Paul Gajewski  is set for May 25th and you can sign up now. Come hear Alison Heller-Ono MSPT, CDA, CPDM, CIE, CPE and Certified Management Consultant speak on Chair Fit or Misfit.

The Skills Inc. Project is progressing. Patti Connolly from PSE, Tonya LaFranchi from ErgoFit, Inc. and Rammohan Maikala from Providence will be conducting the site assessment on May 13th.

It looks like we have located a website design company to redesign the website. We have not sealed the deal yet, but if it flies it should be up in about month & a half.  

Miriam Joffe is shaping up the  Occupational Ergonomics Symposium which is scheduled for September 15, 2016 at Emerald Downs in Auburn, WA. We are waiting to confirm but it looks like John Nance will be our keynote. See more about him on his website:

Thank you.
