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, Ergopoint is our first line of defense in terms of ergonomic wellness. This user-friendly website gives a brief tutorial of basic ergonomic concepts and a self-assessment of your work environment. Ergopoint is designed to work with traditional office settings. For further ergonomics assistance, please contact the ergonomics' specialist by email at Brian Brickey.
