Additional Equipment

Professor Ergo's Thoughts:

I obviously believe that the Ergokit is an essential piece of equipment for every Ergonomist like me. When we are at the job site we must have as many measurement tools as is feasible. The Ergokit makes it feasible to have a lot of measuring devices with you. If we don't have the device we need to measure a suspected risk, we tend to eyeball our analysis and say to management "I think this looks bad". As a profession we need to be very diligent about measuring force, posture, frequency, duration, etc and then using the appropriate risk assessment guidelines like NIOSH, Liberty Mutual Push/Pull, etc to back up our recommendations. Ergonomists who tell management "I think that is not ergonomic and you should spend money to fix it as a priority" without measuring the risk and presenting the prioritized analysis may be hurting the credibility of the profession of ergonomics. We should all measure when we assess and present our measurements. The Ergokit helps make it easy.

Love the kit and the company
August 19, 2009
I would like to show my gratitude for your company's service. I have dealt with some truly unprofessional companies online before. Let's just say I've been waiting a year for one of them to reimburse me. But the service I have got here is extraordinary. All questions were responded to promptly and in detail, and the amount of documentation given is outstanding and neat. I am extremely satisfied. And that's coming from someone who's usually the one to send complain letters. Thank you again for the service and speedy delivery - US to Canada shipments have taken twice as long for me before. You are a model to how companies SHOULD behave online.
