Ergonomics for all workers
This is a free service of the Midstate Council for Occupational Safety and Health, a nonprofit organization in Ithaca NY. Our services are funded through a grant from the NYS Department of Labor.
What is Ergonomics?
- Ergonomics is the practice of improving the comfort, safety, and satisfaction of people at work.
- Ergonomic programs decrease repetitive strain’ injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome, tendinitis, lower back, neck, arm, and shoulder problems.
