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.

FALL 2015


Our 2015 Ergonomics Symposium on September 25th  was a great success. The speakers were fantastic, the attendees were very engaging and the  vendors were pleased with the number of people who came through to visit them. A win-win for all. We will do a complete write up on the symposium in our end-of-year newsletter.   We got a lot of feedback and will be reporting on that as well. Miriam Joffe and her team did a great job!

The next event  - "Active Seating and Engaging User Motion in Chair Design" will be at the Copa Contract Showroom on October 21, 2015. See link to the left for more information and to register.

As announced at the symposium we are looking for 3 people to work on an industrial ergonomic project at Skills Inc. in Auburn with our Outreach Team. We are looking for one experience ergo person and 2 who would like to learn more about industrial ergonomics. Contact me if you are interested.

And last but not least, I would like to welcome Rammohan (Ram) Maikala, PhD  as our 2016 President Elect/Secretary. Ram works at Providence Regional Medical Center in Everett as an  Injury Prevention and Ergonomics Lead. At the end of 2016 I will be taking the position of Past President.

Thank you.

Janet DeLapp

PSHFES President
