ERGONOMICS

How Can We Help?

Ergonomics is the science of adapting your environment to facilitate your highest level of function. The use of ergonomics principles can increase worker productivity and quality. Employers can implement a program that includes guidelines for  employees to follow, contributes to an efficient work environment,  prevents injuries and the development of chronic medical conditions, and  helps employees return to work after an injury has occurred. 

 Occupational therapy practitioners are trained in the structure and  function of the human body and the effects of illness and injury. They  also can determine how the components of the workplace can facilitate a  healthy and efficient environment or one that could cause injury or  illness. An occupational therapist can help employers identify hazards  that may contribute to on-the-job injury, and determine how it can be  eliminated.
