Organizations continue to be challenged with the prevention and reduction of musculoskeletal disorders (MSD). Hearing from organizations that have successfully tackled barriers to realize a reduction in MSD can provide insight into what might be avoided and/or adapted. Interventions, practices, programs, techniques and tools that organizations have implemented which have prevented and/or reduced MSD will be shared via case studies.
Come learn about the current state-of-the-art review on the relationship between human factors and production quality. We will hear from industrial engineering, operations management, and human factors experts on the impact of human factors engineering on operations systems performance, as well as from those who have adopted aspects of human factors into their interventions to prevent human errors, quality deficits, and work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSD).
