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.

Spring is in the Air!

Well, I actually saw it last Friday. You know that bright thing that is in the sky sometimes. For the entire day we had sun.  Yea!

First, I would like to announce this year's Symposium date - October 16, 2014, at the Museum of Flight. This year we have dropped the Workshop from the line up with the goal of providing you more opportunities to attend events throughout the year.

I would like to thank everyone who participated in the survey we conducted in February. The complete results will be posted in the next newsletter, which is due out in March. In summary, members asked for more seminars and discussion sessions, liked the symposium better than the workshop, 46% liked lunch time events rather than morning or evening events, 79% thought the newsletter was of value and 87% thought PSHFES communicated to their members often enough. (We did not give them a chance to say too much)

We had our first event, a dinner discussion about "Favorite Ergonomics Resources" on February 4th. The event went well and was well attended. An outcome of this event will be the development of a resource page for members on the PSHFES website. This will be a living document and we welcome recommendations from members. We will send you a notice when it is posted.

That's it for now.

Thank you.

Janet DeLapp
PSHFES President 2014
