Ergonomics

Have You Ever Had an Office Assessment?

The National Research Council of Canada defines ergonomics as "the application of scientific knowledge to the workplace in order to improve the well-being and efficiency of both the individual and the organization". In other words it is the science of designing the job to fit the worker, not forcing the worker's body to fit the job. We are all different. Some people have long arms, others have short torsos, others have long legs - our differences are endless, yet many of our workstations look exactly alike. If we spend several hours a day at our workstations, why not make them fit us? Use the resources below to help you fit your desk or workstation to you or contact Suzanne McIntosh at suzanne.mcintosh@uleth.ca or 332-5217 for an office assessment.
