How Ergonomics can be helpful to your Organization & to your employees. The Office ergonomics program benefits worker health and safetygood ergonomics maximizes worker safety and productivity. Evaluating workstations and work postures, training workers to detect potential difficulties, and intervening with Professional advice and practices all contribute to better ergonomics.

The ergonomics program is a vital part of health and safety practices for employees. Repetitive motion, awkward postures, and/or forceful exertions, are the culprits in most workplace injuries and illnesses. Fortunately, very few of these injuries now require more than first-aid treatment, primarily because of early detection, intervention, and employee training.

All employees are encouraged to report signs and symptoms of ergonomic problems immediately so that corrective action may be taken as quickly as possible. As an important step in the process, injuries and illness reported to the Management are analyzed to reduce and, wherever possible, to eliminate risk factors in the workplace. Employees can request an ergonomic analysis of their work environments by an ergonomics specialist

Work smarter, not harder is the proactive motto of the ergonomics program. The program helps prevent injury and illness and encourages worker health and safety.
