“I need help with publicity ideas for Work Smart with Ergonomics, Inc., an ergonomic consulting/training company. We provide assessments for businesses that have employees that may be complaining of wrist, neck, back and shoulder pains while sitting at their desk performing typing, researching (surfing) and speaking on the phone, pain from reaching into a file cabinet or even reaching over a counter to provide service. Our goal is to identify the potential cause of the problem and provide cost-effective solutions.
“We also provide all levels of employee educational training programs for HR and safety departments, and for managers on ways to identify the possible causes of an injured employee. We also teach the employee how to prevent injuries related to lifting, twisting or seating incorrectly when performing their job.
“Most people think of the word ‘ergonomics’ as either too expensive to correct, or a chair (which is not the only solution to fixing a problem). Can your Hounds help with ways to promote the company?”
