Ergonomics is defined as the study of work. It is the science of fitting the workstation and tools to the employee. Adapting the job to fit the worker can help reduce ergonomic stress and eliminate many potential ergonomic disorders.
EH&S has resources to perform ergonomic evaluations throughout campus and make recommendations for your workstation. If you would like an assessment of your workspace, contact EH&S to schedule an appointment.
