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.







Even though our winter was not all that bad, it is nice to be back into spring with everything blooming and “carrying on” so early.  At this rate, fall will be over in August.

With Celeste McLaughlin at the helm, PSHFES has started out 2015 with quite a few events planned. We had a very interesting tour at Nucor Steel on March 6th.  When you think of Nucor think big, heavy and hot! Zachary Collins did a great write up about the event and this will be in the next newsletter, so look for that soon. If you want to see what we saw, Google (yes, this is a verb) Nucor and look at the images. We could not take photos on site but there are some on the internet.  

Currently we had two other events coming up:

  • April 1st - Buildings of the Future with Patrick Phelan of the U.S. Department of Energy and Nora Wang of Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
  • April 24th - Ergonomics and Portable Tablet Use Presentation with Anna Pereira from Microsoft

I also know PSHFES is planning a social on May 16that NW Trek. This event includes members and their families and/or close friends. This should an announced soon. To see what this is all about check out their website:       

The Symposium Committee, lead by Miriam Joffe is working hard to get a great line up for our event on September 25, 2015.  This year the event will be located at Salty’s on Alki in west Seattle. The Symposium theme is “Inclusive Design” and Gayna Williams has agreed to be the Keynote Speaker. As keynote, Ms.Williams can discuss inclusive design both from a product development side and from an end-user side.  Ms.Williams attended the University of Loughborough in England for her undergraduate studies and the University of Minnesota with specialty in the automotive industry. She has a strong knowledge about ergonomics as well as a HF/UX background. Formerly, she was a Usability Engineer and then Director of UX at Microsoft. Currently she is a consultant and career coach in UX. We are very excited to have her this year.

Thank you.   Janet DeLapp
