There is no getting around it - every industry, occupation, and employer is facing the challenges of an aging workforce. Yet, a recent study by McKinsey & Company suggests that the baby boomer generation will need to stay employed well past current accepted retirement age.

Participants will gain an understanding on:

  • Ergonomic issues that relate to all settings; office, laboratory, fleet, industrial, etc.
  • How to help employees do their jobs better, safer and longer
  • Key issues facing older workers
  • How to design safety/ergonomic safeguards to reduce the potential for injury

At the heart of the findings in NAEM’s “Ready, Set, Implement: How to Successfully Deploy an EHS & Sustainability Software System” is that success—or failure— often comes down to how well the company mapped the system to its core processes, trained its users and sold the value to the organization.
