Problems that you or your employees may be having:

  • Pain, discomfort or other difficulties performing tasks (e.g. using a computer keyboard or mouse, manual material handling, etc)
  • Accidents, productivity or quality problems that appear to be due to employee carelessness or human error
  • Employees not using equipment that has been provided to them or not following standard procedures
  • Software usability (e.g. website accessibility by persons with disabilities, excessive mouse clicking, re-keying of identical information, etc)
Since 1995, I have been solving problems like what you see above. If any of them look familiar or to prevent them from happening in the first place…I'm happy to help.
