The average cost of a work-related injury in the U.S. is $1,600+ per day which includes the cost of wage losses, medical expenses, and employer costs. The total cost of MSDs to the U.S. economy is estimated to be $45 to $54 billion per year.
Treston, a manufacturer of ergonomic workspace solutions, is committed to reducing both the occurrence of musculoskeletal disorders or MSD injuries and the resulting financial implications they have on businesses. Which is why they've created a groundbreaking new service called Treston ErgoID.
With the tagline "Identify. Improve. Thrive," Treston ErgoID employs AI computer vision software, with the expertise of its very own ergonomics specialists, to analyze workflows and provide comprehensive insights into workplace ergonomics.
While Treston is a global supplier of ergonomic furniture, the company acknowledges that it's not enough to just provide top-of-the-line furniture to address the problems of work-related MSDs. Employers and workers alike should also be equipped with the knowledge to identify poor ergonomic conditions and understand how to use their furniture properly, maximizing their investment in ergonomics.
Employers and workers can choose from three assessment service packages: Starter, Pro, and Enterprise. From a one-time ergonomics assessment of customer-recorded workflow video to a complete on-site evaluation and training, each package caters to specific needs and budgets, ensuring a healthier and more productive work environment.
Treston ErgoID stands out by combining the power of AI computer vision with the expertise of its own ergonomics specialists. Users receive personalized recommendations based on video assessment results, encompassing ergonomic improvement suggestions and proper positioning techniques. This comprehensive approach empowers individuals and organizations to maximize productivity while minimizing the risk of musculoskeletal issues.
"As a manufacturer of ergonomic furniture, we are committed to promoting life-long workability by helping our customers manage their physical workload,” says Treston Ergonomics Specialist, Jonna Patama. “By identifying the harmful work postures and providing training for a more ergonomic way of working, we can work together to prevent work-related MSDs now and in the future."
There are many options for workplaces when it comes to assessing the ergonomics of the workplace. From manual assessments to wearable technology to full-scale ergonomists’ consultations, each method offers its own advantages and challenges. Manual assessments can be subjective and require an interruption to workers. Wearable technology can be very costly in terms of money and setup time. Neither of those options goes beyond basic data to provide concrete action plans for improvement. Ergonomics consultants, while providing a very detailed dive into workplace ergonomics, come at a high price tag, often outside the budget of smaller workplaces.
By combining AI computer vision’s standardized consistency with expert recommendations provided by ergonomic specialists, ErgoID eliminates the need for work interruptions and avoids the time and costs associated with other approaches.
As the world adapts to new ways of working, Treston ErgoID emerges with a unique opportunity to identify, improve, and thrive in the ever-evolving landscape of workspace ergonomics.
