From The Ergoweb® Learning Center

Ergoweb CEO to Facilitate Ergonomics Intranet Workshop

Ergoweb’s President and CEO, Peter Budnick, Ph.D., CPE, will act as facilitator for “Developing Intranet Web Sites for Ergonomics,” one of the practitioner-oriented presentations scheduled for the 6th Annual Applied Ergonomics Conference, to be held March 10-13, 2003, in Dallas, Texas.

As part of a broad range of presentations scheduled for the 2003 conference, Dr. Budnick’s “Developing Intranet Web Sites for Ergonomics” workshop will feature industry experts who have implemented successful intranet applications within their own companies, and will provide valuable insight into building and deploying ergonomics intranet sites in participants’ own companies.

Focusing on intranets as effective and efficient tools for sharing and disseminating ergonomics information throughout an organization, the half-day workshop will provide an overview of intranet methods including web pages, email systems, online training, evaluation, and best practices, and demonstrate the value they offer by way of real world examples.

Dr. Budnick will share experience he’s gained through advising and developing intranet resources for various applications and organizations. Gene Kay, M.S., CEA, one of two ergonomists at American Express, will relay knowledge he gained by moving the AMEX ergonomics program onto an intranet, and provide examples from that successful system. Paul Schwab, CPE, Ergonomics Program Manager for Texas Instruments, will show how his company uses intranet resources to facilitate employee assessment requests, accessory orders, and track individual preferred workstation settings. He’ll also demonstrate a unique worldwide system TI developed to track ergonomics concerns associated with new and legacy equipment. Brian Breider, CSP, ARM, of IBM, will show how his company expertly applies its technical know-how by sharing examples from the IBM Employee Well-Being Intranet Site.
