We are deeply convinced that each dollar invested on ergonomics in the office will bring about a solid return.

MSDs account for more than 30 percent of insurance claims made to the CSST (Quebec’s occupational health and safety board), and affect more than 35,000 Quebecers. A simple shoulder tendinitis can bring about an average of 57.8 days of missed work. But over and above the official numbers of the CSST and reported cases, absenteeism and lowered productivity caused by back pain and other MSDs, represent a large financial burden for enterprises in Quebec and to society in general.

The solution is simple: by eliminating discomfort, pain, and muscular fatigue, we’re not only working toward a healthy and safe workplace, but also an increase in the comfort and wellbeing of employees, which all contribute to reducing absenteeism and improving productivity.
