Expertise

I can answer questions regarding office, healthcare, and industrial ergonomics as well as general health and safety issues. I specialize in macro-ergonomics which deals with both individual issues (such as injuries and prevention) as well as corporate/organizational prevention plans. This includes working with companies that are interested in creating company-wide safety programs, health programs, and intervention strategies. My background is in occupational therapy and I am able to answer questions regarding specific medical injuries and workers compensation. This also makes me uniquely qualified to speak on the aging workforce and modifications specific to that population. I cannot answer questions regarding OSHA regulations and legal issues. While I know some things about manufacturing, I am not an engineer and tend to refer some of those questions to others.

Experience in the area

My company, Worksite Health & Safety Consultants, an ergonomic and occupational health consultation firm has just turned eight years old. We are located in the Washington metro area. As owner I travel around the world speaking on ergonomics, aging in the workplace, and occupational health. I have consulted in the field of occupational health and ergonomics for the last twelve years. Additionally, I am an Occupational Therapist and have specialized in the treatment of work injuries/work-related musculoskeletal disorders and modifications for return to work post-injury for the last fourteen years.
