Ergonomics
Contact: Mike Burke, mjb7@psu.edu814-865-6391

Ergonomics is the study of the relationship between us and our work area, equipment or tasks. More importantly, the related principles and guidelines can also show us how to avoid injuries to the upper extremities, back and other parts of the body. An effective program emphasizes prevention in conjunction with monitoring injured employees through close working relationships between EHS, OPP, Occupational Medicine, Sports Medicine, Risk Management, Human Resources and various units and departments.
