Ergonomics

Ergonomics is the study of fitting the job/workstation to the individual.


The Environmental Health & Safety (EH&S) office is involved in working with individuals and departments to provide for the best possible fit of equipment and duties to the worker. EH&S works on controlling worksite hazards, including ergonomic problems.

  • Office Ergonomics Tips - in order to understand the best way to set up a computer workstation, you first need to understand neutral posture. This is a comfortable working posture in which your joints are naturally aligned and your risk of developing a musculoskeletal disorder is reduced.
  • Computer & Desk Stretches -a series of stretches to relieve muscular tension and pain.
