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.
