Ergonomics

Ergonomics is a multidisciplinary science that adapts the employee’s work environment, work tools, and activities to the employee. Ergonomics maximizes job function and productivity of the employee while preventing injuries, improving employee comfort, promoting return to work after an injury, and accommodating an employee with injuries or disabilities to perform his/her work tasks.

To request an Ergonomic Evaluation, follow the instructions below.

Requesting an ergonomic evaluation involves the following two-step online process:

Step 1: Self-Evaluation – an online self-evaluation must be completed. Upon completion, results will be provided via email and recommended self-adjustments must be implemented.
Step 2: In-person Ergonomic Evaluation Request – if the recommended self-adjustments are found to be unsatisfactory, a request for an in-person ergonomic evaluation from an Occupational Therapist can be submitted 8hrs after completing the self-evaluation.
