Ergonomics

Ergo

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 Ergonomic Assessment Form.
