Companies across numerous industries around the world depend on the manual labor workers perform on a daily basis. In the majority of cases, these workers are typically exposed to challenging and risk-prone manual material handling jobs that can be uncomfortable, repetitive, strenuous and fatiguing. Unmonitored ergonomics or poorly designed workplace environments generally lead to Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs), which create a huge financial and societal burden for companies, employees and their families.
For over 20 years, we’ve been helping companies minimize these burdens by providing ergonomics software management systems and services. Our passion is to help companies succeed by creating sustainable ergonomics solutions that not only reduce employee risk, but also increase productivity and deliver a higher quality product. Our commitment is to generate value across multiple business metrics, including EHS, Engineering, Productivity, Quality, and Human Resources.
A STRONG FOUNDATION
Ergoweb has a long history of being an innovator and pioneer within the ergonomics software market. Since its beginnings in 1995, Ergoweb’s primary goal was to commercialize the industrial job assessment software and succeeded by launching the first ever software-as-a-service (SaaS) web solution to industrial companies.
From 1995 until today, Ergoweb has successfully guided hundreds of companies—from local mid-sized companies to global Fortune 500 corporations—with their industrial ergonomic challenges; spun-off a separate company (Ergobuyer LLC) to assist clients with identifying and procuring equipment with genuine ergonomic features; created and sold a company specializing in office ergonomics (ErgoAdvocate LLC – now owned by VelocityEHS); published and shared thousands of resources focusing on topics that promote and enable continuous ergonomics improvement; and has earned the respect of its peers.
In 2017, Ergoweb restructured itself to better serve its partners, customers, and the industrial EHS market by developing Ergoweb Enterprise™—a robust ergonomics SaaS solution—supported by consulting services and training.
