What is ergonomics?

Ergonomics focuses on the design of your work environment and arranging workplaces, products, and systems so that they properly fit the people who use them. Are you sitting at your desk correctly? Is your chair at the right height? Is your screen an appropriate distance from your face?

The Environmental Health & Safety department at the University of Rochester works to make sure that work stations are comfortable and efficient for employees in order to keep all employees healthy and safe. Available on their website is an ergonomic checklist to evaluate your workstation, contact information to set up a free ergonomic assessment, and additional information about ergonomics.
