Ergonomics

Ergonomics is the designing and layout of work environments and tasks to fit the workers' needs for comfort and safety, rather than expecting the worker to adapt to an uncomfortable situation. EH&S will evaluate the employee at their workstation and recommend minor adjustments for comfort. These can be as simple as readjusting the chair, raising or lowering the monitor, adding a footstool or taking breaks from our computers to relieve the stress of sitting for long periods of time. In some cases, corrective furniture is necessary to solve ergonomic problems.
