Tracks are available in Manufacturing Applications, Services/Support Industries, Office Applications, Engineering and Design and Ergonomics Programs. Billing itself as Practitioners talking with practitioners, attendees can learn key ergonomics information, as well as how leading companies implemented successful ergonomics programs and what the attendees can do to mirror these results.
