Project Ergo is a collaborative project between Disability Resources and Services and Computer Services to encourage healthy computing among students, faculty, and staff. We have purchased over 100 ergonomic items and placed them throughout the TECH Center for everyone's use.
Ergonomics applies to the design of every type of item and all kinds of workplaces. The application of ergonomics helps to keep workers in every industry healthy, reduce absenteeism, decrease disability, and increase productivity. Teaching proper body mechanics is a great way to ensure that our students have a healthy work life.
Here are some suggested articles and web sites that demonstrate how ergonomics can be applied in a variety of disciplines.
