GRAND HAVEN, Mich., November 21, 2012 — The good news about ergonomics is the exploding options for employers seeking to ease workforce pain. The bad news is, the field is growing too fast for most to keep up.

In three presentations at the 2012 National Ergonomics Conference (or ErgoExpo) in Las Vegas, Atlas Ergonomics will reveal how employers can avoid information overload and confidently choose the most effective ergonomic options.

On Tuesday, December 4 at 9:00 a.m., Atlas founder Drew Bossen will help kick off the conference with "Pinpointing Program Weaknesses and Planning Your Time at ErgoExpo." Attendees will learn to identify gaps in their ergonomics programs and gain a foundation for continuous program improvements. This gathering can also reveal which Wednesday, Thursday and Friday sessions will be most worthwhile for each participant.

On Wednesday at 8:30 a.m., Bossen will clarify the organizational implications of the growing wellness movement in the no-nonsense, productivity-focused presentation, "Why Your Organization Needs a Wellness Program." Participants will learn the workforce implications of the obesity epidemic, including the data relating obesity to medical expenses, workplace injuries and workers' compensation costs.

Thursday morning, Bossen will join forces with Cathryn Lang of Pearson North America in presenting the case study, "Pearson's Successful Strategies with a Dispersed Workforce." This presentation covers how Pearson, a large education publisher with approximately 30,000 employees in 17 states, combined online risk assessment and various degrees of one-to-one intervention in a comprehensive ergonomics program with measurable results.
