‘Find It – Fix It’ Ergonomics Challenge Is On

Organizations are asked to submit their best workplace improvements, highlighting the implementation of a creative, sustainable, and high-impact ergonomic solution.

Humantech, an Ann Arbor, Mich.-based ergonomics company, announced it is sponsoring its fifth annual Find It – Fix It Challenge™, which recognizes and rewards simple and effective workplace solutions that result in increased productivity, improved worker morale, and fewer workplace injuries and illnesses. The contest was derived from Humantech’s RAPID Team Events®, which are based on the concept of making quick and simple visible changes to improve ergonomic issues in the workplace.

“The Find It – Fix It Challenge is a great opportunity to recognize organizations investing in and supporting their human capital,” said James Good, president of Humantech. “All the contest entries are an inspiration to business leaders looking for ways to leverage ergonomics to create more profitable and sustainable companies.”

The contest is open to all past and current Humantech clients. Organizations are asked to submit their best workplace improvements, highlighting the implementation of a creative, sustainable, and high-impact ergonomic solution. The submission process and step-by-step instructions, including entry form templates, can be downloaded by visiting the Find It-Fix It Challenge website.

The contest runs from July 15, 2011, to Sept. 2, 2011. By mid-September, 15 finalists will be selected by a panel of certified professional ergonomists and Humantech staff members. Of the finalists, two honorable mentions and one first place winner will be selected. The finalists will be notified by mid-November.

The 2010 Find It – Fix It Challenge awarded Georgia Pacific’s Wauna Mill plant, located in Clatskanie, Ore., for its intuitive pulp covering flex tube bagger. Honorable mentions were given to Houston-based BP, for its new battery charging station, and to Solar Turbines in San Diego, for its compressor case installation device.
