Ergonomics: The Foundation

Ergonomic reviews are conducted as a one-on-one meeting and scheduled by request of the the individual employee or the supervisor. Please notify your direct supervisor prior to requesting an ergonomic review to expedite the process of scheduling the meeting. Departments are responsible for approving and funding any equipment or changes identified during the review.

The Foundation presentation covers the science of ergonomics, basics of healthy postures, simple adjustments that make lasting improvements, and how to prevent discomfort while at your seated work area. To schedule a session for your department or group contact (309) 438-8845.
