A lack of concern for ergonomics can have a direct negative impact on corporate expenses, insurance rates, and the bottom line.  The American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons estimates that job-related motion injuries for all occupations - including agricultural, industrial, and office jobs -- cost $27 billion a year in medical treatment and lost income.  OSHA estimates that by the turn of the century, 50 cents out of every dollar spent in medical costs will go to treating cumulative trauma injuries if businesses ignore ergonomic problems.
