TORONTO/ONTARIO (May 3, 2018) – Ergonomic assessment and management is validated with extensive scientific research to make recommendations faster, easier and more cost-effective. Workplace ergonomics is crucial for companies in preventing injuries and increasing productivity, which means proper and professional assessments are needed to ensure all employees are protected.
MyAbilities is proud to announce our partnership with Options Incorporated as a founding premier partner in providing the MyAbilities software platform to their clients to enhance their services. “The technology MyAbilities has developed will streamline and automate data collection, data entry and job analysis. Their technology facilitates improved accuracy and enhance data accessibility,” said Kirsti MacAulay, Principal Ergonomist of Options Incorporated. “This means that Options Incorporated Ergonomists are able to review, analyze, or assess the data more efficiently and minimize non-value added tasks. This provides our clients with a higher return on investment through Options Incorporated Ergonomists applying our expertise, sharing our insight, and assembling solutions”.
“MyAbilities is a very exciting tool for ergonomists– both from performing their technical duties, as well as building their businesses,” Dr. Michael Sonne, VP of Innovations and Research stated. “As a company, MyAbilities’ development has focused on providing ergonomists an easy to use, yet powerful platform for conducting and managing job demands data, and using standardized online dashboards summarizing the demands of jobs at work. The physical demands description is such a rich and powerful source of job data, and it has long been isolated in its use – focusing just on return to work. MyAbilities gives employers and ergonomists the technology to use their PDDs for the complete employee lifecycle from post hire to return to work,” Sonne adds.
“MyAbilities partnership with Options Incorporated is the first of many partnerships we hope to build with ergonomics consultants and health and safety professionals to help evolve our industry,” says Reed Hanoun, founder and CEO of MyAbilities. “By partnering with MyAbilities, Options Incorporated has demonstrated their desire to maintain their leadership role in the market and we are committed to supporting them and their clients through our innovations.”
