Ergonomics is the science of fitting the job and the work environment to the worker. Risk Management in coordination with LU Human Resources has online ergonomic training available and is able to advise employees about adjustments they can make to help reduce injury on the job.
Ergonomic training includes the evaluation of work areas and recommendations to help improve an uncomfortable work situation. Ergonomic training is available at the department's request. Trainings are given throughout the year. Call John Peterson at 592-4846 request ergonomic training.
Ergonomic training includes information about office setting illumination, noise levels and workstations and how simple adjustments to these can result in improved ergonomic conditions. Risk Management's ergonomic training also includes a discussion about repetitive motion.
