Communication is opened up regarding ergonomic issues. Workers typically wait until pain is severe before reporting it. Often by then it is too late to resolve the discomfort quickly, but the stressors that caused or contributed to the discomfort can be eliminated to promote the road to recovery. An ergonomic culture in the office encourages people to speak up sooner concerning “at risk” activities. By responding quickly, pain and discomfort can be preventable.
Morale and loyalty is enhanced when an employee sees that their company is committed to their health and well-being.
