Ergonomics play an important role in our safety and wellbeing. The proper ergonomic design of our workspaces can minimize the risk of a wide range of injuries – from eye strain and carpal tunnel syndrome to persistent neck or back pain.
Fortunately, many potential injuries can be avoided by making a few simple changes to the setup of our workspaces and bringing awareness to the repetitive movements we perform as part of our daily work. The UBC Ergonomics program offers a range of services to promote optimal working postures and practices to reduce workplace musculoskeletal injuries.
The Ergonomics Program is operating virtually. Check out our Working from Home Ergonomics Guide or contact us to arrange your virtual assessment.
