Ergonomic Evaluations

 

What is ergonomics, and why is it important?

Ergonomics is the science of fitting jobs to people. It focuses on designing workstations, tools, and job tasks for safety and efficiency. Effective ergonomic design coupled with good posture can reduce employee injuries and increase job satisfaction and productivity.

Injuries resulting from poor workplace ergonomics, such as back injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome, and tendinitis can be debilitating for employees and costly to the University.

Please take a moment to review the University Health Services Information on A User Friendly Workstation and Personal Workstation Checklist.
