EASE Council to Present Free Webinar on the Ergonomics of Order Fulfillment
Monday, January 16, 2017
The Ergonomics Assist and Systems Equipment (EASE) Council of MHI is presenting a free webinar on “The Bad Ergonomics of Order Fulfillment and Stocking… and What to Do About It!” on February 16.
EASE Council Chairman James Galante will be speaking about ways to implement better manual handling devices throughout the order fulfillment and stocking process which can improve the ergonomics, reduce much of this stress on the employee, while increasing efficiency and productivity. In addition, innovative use of these material handling devices can be the key to leveraging the core LEAN value of eliminating waste in industrial operations.
