Ergonomics is the study of work, including people, equipment, environment and the process. 

Preventative

A free preventative ergonomic evaluation is available  for any faculty or staff member that is interested in preventing discomfort while performing job tasks. Through the ergonomic evaluation process, our goal is to assess any work-related factors that may pose a risk of illness or injury and fit the equipment, environment and process to the worker as well as recommend low cost/ no cost solutions.

 

Medical

A free medical ergonomic evaluation is available for any faculty or staff member under  physician, chiropractor, or therapist care related to the discomfort experienced during the work day. In order to schedule a medical ergonomic evaluation, you must first have the physician prescription/referral form filled out. The form then must be faxed to Suzanne Bade at (734)615-1570.
