Get set for success with ergonomics

January 7, 2009

Start the year with a change - evaluate and adjust your workstation to improve your comfort and productivity.

Ergonomics is the science of fitting the job to the worker and has proven important in preventing the types of musculoskeletal injuries that contribute to increasing workplace related disability claims. Ergonomic implementation works to prevent injuries rather than treat them.

A complete ergonomics program includes the education about risk factors and causes of injuries, and encourages good habits in posture, body mechanics and exercise at work, at home and at leisure.

Ergonomics Program  at Colorado State

The Ergonomics Program is a division of Environmental Health Services at Colorado State University. Our goal is to prevent the discomfort associated with ergonomic-related injures. This is done through evaluations of workstations and work practices, and implementation of ergonomic control strategies.
