Ergonomics is the science of designing the job, equipment, and workplace to fit the worker. Proper ergonomic design is necessary to prevent repetitive strain injuries, which can develop over time and can lead to long-term disability. 

Members of the TWU community who have any concerns about the ergonomics of their work station, or any work tasks they perform, are encouraged to contact Risk Management for an ergonomic assessment.
