Ergonomics

 

Ergonomic Assessments

Ergonomics is the science of fitting jobs to the people who work in them. The goal of ergonomics is to make work more comfortable and to improve both health and productivity. Workshops are offered to help address the physical, environmental, and emotional aspects of work and discussion includes computer use, repetitive motion, musculoskeletal disorders, etc.

Ergonomic disorders are the most rapidly growing category of work related illnesses. The Office of Environmental Health and Safety will survey awareness or lack of awareness of Ergonomics within the College community, identify and assess needs and risk factors at worksites, provide training and education to faculty and staff, provide resources to faculty and staff so that they may be empowered to proactively implement changes to improve safety, comfort, and function at their worksites.  Please contact EHS for more information on the Ergonomics Program at CPCC.
