California State Fund Offers Aging and Ergonomics Seminar in Santa Ana

April 25, 2006

In the next four years, the number of workers 55 years or older will increase 32 percent. To help employers understand and respond to that trend, California State Compensation Insurance Fund’s Santa Ana district office has scheduled a free seminar, “Aging and Ergonomics…It’s not all Bad News,” that will address workplace modifications necessary to prevent injury in an aging workforce on April 26. The seminar also will cover how employers can establish “return-to-work” programs for workers with injuries.

Featured speakers include State Fund ergonomics expert Helen Chandler, and State Fund Return-to-Work Consultants Pamela Joyce and Susan Black.

Topics at the seminar include:
Aging in the Workforce:
* Tips to prevent work injuries
* Retaining experienced staff and managing a mature workforce

* Helping employees return to work after a job-related injury or illness
* Reducing re-training costs
* Reducing litigation
* Improving employee productivity

The seminar is from 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. at State Fund’s Santa Ana district office, 1750 East 4th Street, in the first floor conference room. Registration begins at 8 a.m. and there is a complimentary continental breakfast. To register for the event, please call (714) 565-5992, or send a fax to (714) 565-5988.
