Denver, CO – (November 13 2012) – Integrated Business Resources (IBR) and Ergo Squad are showcasing Comfort Zone™, their pro-active loss control and risk management program for the office workplace, at the National Ergonomics Conference and Exposition (Ergo Expo) in Las Vegas on December 5 - 7. Comfort Zone helps management identify and correct the factors that impede worker performance and put them at risk of occupational injuries. It prevents computer-use related injuries by correcting the causes of physical discomfort at the workstation.
Studies show that discomfort at the computer workstation can negatively impact productivity and also expose your company to potential safety risks. “If your organization has computer users, it’s extremely likely that many employees are experiencing physical discomfort,”
Workstation comfort has a direct impact on employee productivity. “Physical discomfort in the office workplace can result in work stoppage, higher error rates, increased workers compensation claims and rising health insurance costs,” Pace adds. “This Ergo Expo audience understands that a comfortable yet productive work environment is vital to business success. We’re excited to show them how Comfort Zone can identify and manage critical environmental variables to enable their companies to reduce risk and realize sustainable cost reductions while enhancing productivity.”
