How Can Ergonomics Improve My Employee Wellness Program?

Ergonomics is the science of designing and arranging things you use in a safer and more efficient way.

One way to employ ergonomics is to redesign your work environment. Examples include moving items closer to reduce reaching and bending over., and setting computer screens at a height that minimizes bad posture.Make sure to coordinate any changes with your supervisor or management.

Ergonomics can also be applied to work tasks. For example, when performing repetitive tasks or working in awkward positions, add variety to movements, or take a break from one task and move on to another.
