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.



Welcome to the New Year.

The Council will have their first meeting on January 13th. We will be sending our last newsletter for 2015 out to you soon. You will find lots of information in there.

The Skills Inc. Project has begun. Our project participants include Patti Connolly from PSE, Tonya LaFranchi from ErgoFit, Inc. and Rammohan Maikala from Providence. I have an update regarding the project in the newsletter. 

Besides event planning and the symposium we  plan  to redo the website in 2016. We will be defining what we want it to look like and what features we want to add.  We will be asking for a few bids for the work. So if you know of any website designers you might let them know.  

We are looking for a few members to help us out with event planning and the symposium. Miriam Joffe has her creative juices flowing for the symposium format and I got to say it's going to be great!

Thank you.

Janet DeLapp

PSHFES President
