Ergonomics - Preventing Workplace Injury

Ergonomics focuses on designing and organizing things to ensure they are easy and safe for people to use. It is the scientific study making sure things work in a cohesive manner, whether in the workplace, at home, or in a public space. Doing so can lead to a much more comfortable, efficient and safe environment, and is crucial in preventing workplace injuries.

Workstation Ergonomics - Preventing Workplace Injuries

Ergonomics & Working from Home

One of the most common changes that we have seen in the last few years is the way that people work, and more specifically, the amount of people who now work from home, at least part time. Working from home means no travel, allowing you to enjoy more downtime that would normally be taken up by your commute. While there are many perks that come with working from home, your home office space may not be an ideal and/or safe working environment.
