Tony Silva, CPE, Director of Ergonomic Services for Atlas, will share a case study on how Six Sigma methodology can improve office ergonomics. The session, titled Six Sigma Approach to Improving your Office Ergonomics Process, will be held Monday, June 1 from 12:10 PM- 12:30 PM in Conference Room PO 103.

Silva will outline how some organizations with long-running ergonomics programs have hit performance plateaus. The session will show how organizations can improve their ergonomics programs utilizing Six Sigma. Some of the key takeaways of the session include:

  • When and how to use different Six Sigma methods to collect Voice of the Customer and determine Critical to Quality characteristics
  • How to analyze root cause with Fishbone diagrams and brainstorming techniques to develop process improvements
  • Running pilots and testing improvements before rolling out corporate wide

“So many organizations either can’t push past a certain performance level or don’t know how to,” says Silva. “This session will show attendees how a data-driven approach helped a large financial institution better measure, improve and control their program. The result was a significant reduction in ergonomics process errors and a more standardized approach to evaluation and control of ergonomic risks.”
