Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), often stemming from ergonomic risk factors, are the largest category of workplace injuries in the United States. According to the 2021 Liberty Mutual Workplace Safety Index, overexertion injuries (lifting, pushing, pulling, holding, or carrying objects) are the leading cause for disabling work-related injuries, costing businesses more than $58 billion every year. Additionally, according to NSC Injury Facts, in 2020, the U.S. private sector experienced 247,620 MSD injuries or illnesses resulting in days away from work. To address the significant risk of MSDs, the National Safety Council joined with a major industry partner in 2021 and created the MSD Solutions Lab. In this session, NSC researchers from the MSD Solutions Lab will provide an overview of the initiative and discuss work to date, including the outcome of their scoping review on MSD literature in identifying the challenges for research, innovation, and collaboration, and the building of an index for tracking organization performance to support research into practice. In summary, this session will highlight the MSD Solutions Lab initiatives by discussing current work and plans for future innovation, research, and practice to help ensure that all workplaces are free from MSDs and MSD risk so workers can thrive on and off the clock.

This interactive and discussion-based webinar will be centered around common anthropometric challenges faced by both academics/researchers and industry/practitioners, such as:

  • Use of biomechanical measurements, their modeling, and their application to real-world scenarios.
  • Using anthropometry as the driver of equipment, products, workstations, and work process design.
  • Implications when anthropometrics is not considered in design and how one must compensate or adjust after the fact.
  • Other related topics, experiences, and concerns raised by webinar attendees.

This webinar will introduce biophilic design which emphasizes the value of using inspiration from how natural systems operate to produce sustainable designs which also support human health, wellbeing, and effectiveness. In this webinar, Bill will use examples from the built environment to demonstrate the value of biophilic design in supporting human health and wellbeing.

ErgoX Site

First held in 2015 and over time formalizing into a user-centered design meeting in 2018, the ErgoX Symposium has demonstrated that a symbiotic approach to improving the design of technology and equipment is possible. With the goal to improve safe and effective technology user adoption, ErgoX offers a virtual and physical space to showcase the latest in technology evolution, research, and application and their intersection with human-system interaction and integration. 

The 2022 ErgoX Symposium takes place immediately following the 66th Annual Meeting of HFES at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in Atlanta, GA, USA.

Too often, residential solar installations force workers to face unique safety hazards in terms of roof conditions and panel installations. These safety hazards can expose workers to severe risks such as falling from heights, electrical shock, and manual handling risks. Prevention through Design (PtD) has significant potential to address and prevent such hazards during the design process. This seminar will present analyses of opportunities and impacts of applying PtD to residential solar in order to prevent injuries related to solar installation.
