Ergonomics
Assessment

Ergonomics is the science of fitting the job to the worker. EHS has implemented an ergonomics program to focus on the prevention and management of work-related musculoskeletal disorders associated with repetitive job duties. By providing a better fitting work environment, an employer can expect higher productivity; avoidance of illness and injury risk; and increased job satisfaction among workers.

EHS provides ergonomic evaluations for computer workstations and material handling. Ergonomic assessments can be requested by using the EHS Service Request Form. Select Occupational Health and Safety from the Service Area drop-down menu and Ergonomic Assessment from the Service drop-down menu.
