Ergonomics

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 risk of musculoskeletal disorders associated with work postures, movements, poor habits, 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.  Please go to Velocity to start your ergonomic evaluation. Please note that the assessment will take a full hour to complete and there is no charge to the agency.

For further ergonomics assistance, please contact the ergonomics' specialist via the Safety email.
