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.

Summer 2014

Hope everyone is enjoying their summer

 We are excited about the October 16, 2014 Symposium event at the Museum of Flight, Seattle WA.


              SIGN UP NOW

Our Keynote speaker is Mark Benden, CPE, PhD, the Director of the Ergonomics Centers at Texas A&M Health Science Center. Dr. Benden will be discussing "Future Ergonomics Assessments Using Advanced Technology". Topics, such as, new apps and wearable sensors will be discussed.

We have a few more events coming up:        

On September 17 from 12:00-2:00PM we will offer a tour at Valin Corp in Kent, WA with a BBQ lunch provided.  Valin is a leading distributor of automation, filtration, fluid handling, fluid power, heating and process control products & systems for a wide range of high purity and industrial applications.  They are going to allow us to operate the Schmalz Inc. lifters while we are there, so anyone who wishes to get a hands-on feel for vacuum lifters will be able to do so. They have a few different models on hand.  

On October 13, 2014 we will also be having a lunch or dinner (TBA) event with Ronald Porter, PT, CEAS III, Director of The Back School. He has instructed over 1000 workshops and seminars on Ergonomics Awareness and Musculoskeletal Disorder Prevention, as well as worked with over 200 industries consulting on the development and implementation of innovative ergonomics programs for both individual plant sites and entire corporations.


It will good to see you at the events.

Thank you.
