Ergonomics Assesments

Don’t let your work cost you! Many injuries are caused by chronic postures and poor ergonomics. Ergonomics is the science and art of seeking the best fit between people and their work. It takes into account the capabilities of the individual and seeks to ensure that their tasks, equipment, and environment suit them. Proper ergonomics can reduce your risk of fatigue and repetitive-stress injuries from work, all while making your work space more comfortable and efficient.
