Worksite Evaluation (ERGO)

Computer Worksite Evaluation & Training

Ergonomics is the science of fitting the job and the work environment to the worker. Risk Management is available to do group ergonomic training and to advise employees about adjustments they can make to help reduce injury on the job.

Ergonomic training includes the evaluation of work areas and recommendations to help improve an uncomfortable work situation. Ergonomic training is available for groups at a department's request.  Occasional group trainings are given throughout the year at events such as "Mastering The Maze". Call Sarah Burnett at 656-0738 to request ergonomic training.

Ergonomic training includes information about office setting illumination, noise levels and workstations and how simple adjustments to these can result in improved ergonomic conditions. Risk Management's ergonomic training also includes a discussion about repetitive motion.
