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.

Due to COVID-19, EHS is unable to conduct in-person ergonomic evaluations of employee workstations.  If you are experiencing discomfort associated with telecommuting, please notify your supervisor and complete an ergonomic assessment form. Bridget Marrs will contact you to discuss your concerns. 


In the meantime, take a look at Alternate Workplace Ergonomics for telecommuting and at home work.
