Ergonomics & Back Safety

Ergonomics is the study of how to improve the fit between the physical demands of the workplace and the employees who perform the work. Simply put, ergonomics is fitting the job to the worker, not the worker to the job.  Poor ergonomics can lead to musculoskeletal disorders.  With symptoms including pain and limitations, employees will see effects both at work and at home. In addition, treatment can be expensive and extensive, and both employers and employees can potentially face significant bills.
