May 22, 2008

ANN ARBOR, Mich. - Humantech, Inc. has announced the fall schedule of its popular series of ergonomics seminars. Health and safety staff, engineers, facilities managers, lean manufacturing champions, and ergonomics committees can learn to maximize the benefits of an ergonomics process from Humantech's experienced, board certified ergonomists. The fall 2008 seminar schedule covers such topics as industrial ergonomics, office ergonomics, and leveraging ergonomics in lean manufacturing. Seminars will be offered at Humantech's Ann Arbor, Mich. corporate training center; Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas; Orange, Calif.; and Chicago, Ill.

According to Walt Rostykus, Board Certified Professional Ergonomist and vice president of Humantech, "Our hands-on, straightforward approach will arm participants with the knowledge and skills they need to make immediate, simple, and effective human performance improvements within their own organizations." Participants will be able to apply tools and techniques to make an impact on their health and safety metrics through an effective ergonomics program.

Applied Industrial Ergonomics will be held in Ann Arbor, Dallas/Fort Worth, Orange, and Chicago. This two-day seminar focuses on practical approaches to improving problem jobs, increasing productivity, and reducing injuries in an industrial environment. Attendees will learn to evaluate workstations and equipment, identify factors contributing to work-related musculoskeletal disorders, and prioritize ergonomic improvements to maximize return on investment.

Applied Office Ergonomics, a one-day seminar offered in Ann Arbor, Dallas/Fort Worth, and Orange, focuses on achieving a comfortable, healthy, and productive office environment. The goal of the course is to provide participants with the tools, knowledge, and resources to achieve dramatic improvements in office productivity and health and safety through ergonomics.

The one-day Leveraging Ergonomics in Your Lean Initiative seminar is intended for those who would like to incorporate ergonomics into the lean manufacturing process. It will provide a building block for an integrated lean/ergonomics process in its infancy stage, as well as amplify and accelerate currently successful ergonomics processes. This interactive workshop will allow attendees to take a customized plan for integrating their company's ergonomics tools into its existing lean process back to their work site. This seminar is being offered in conjunction with the Applied Industrial Ergonomics course in Ann Arbor and Chicago.
