Why “Office Ergonomics” Matters:

The goal of ergonomics is to reduce injuries and illnesses caused by stress and strain on the job. Ergonomics helps keep you safe and healthy.

Ergonomics involves engineering and administrative controls. For example, office ergonomics may include engineering or designing the layout of your computer workstation so that your exposure to ergonomic risks is reduced. The way or sequence in which a task is performed may also be changed to help reduce risk factors.
