Industrial Ergonomics Program

Scope

Ergonomics is the study of people and their interaction with the elements of their job or task including equipment, tools, facilities, processes, and environment. In practical terms, ergonomics is the science of human comfort. When aspects of the work or workplace exceed the body’s capabilities, the result is often a musculoskeletal disorder (MSD). To help avoid MSDs, work demands should not exceed the physical capabilities of the worker. MSDs are also known by several other names including:

  • CTDs (cumulative trauma disorders, the most common name)

  • RSIs (repetitive stress or repetitive strain injuries)

  • RMIs (repetitive motion injuries)

  • Overuse syndrome

The purpose of the Industrial Ergonomics Program is to apply ergonomic principles to the workplace in an effort to reduce the number and severity of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), thus decreasing workers’ compensation claims and, where possible, increasing productivity, quality and efficiency. An ergonomically-designed work environment maximizes employee comfort while minimizing the risk of undue physical stress that often leads to injuries.
