**The State Office of Risk Management is working with a new company to provide updated and comprehensive assessments. Please stay tuned for more information. If you have questions or need an ergonomic evaluation, please contact Brian Brickey through the link below. He will be able to provide information and answer any questions.**
Welcome to the statewide Ergonomics Program! Ergonomics is the study of the relationship between the worker and the work environment, including the workstation, equipment, and the tasks performed. Through an ergonomic evaluation, there is an opportunity to reduce the probability of developing Work-Related Musculoskeletal Disorders (WMSDs). WMSDs are associated with work postures, movements, repetitiveness, pace of work, force of movements, vibration and temperature. Proper ergonomics is essential to health and productivity!
At the state,online assessments are our first line of defense in terms of ergonomic wellness. For further ergonomics assistance, please contact the ergonomics' specialist by email at Brian Brickey.
