Ergonomics is the scientific discipline that adjusts for individual differences in an environment to place the least amount of stress on a person -in other words, making people as comfortable as possible!

Such factors include positioning, work stations/equipment design, temperature, noise and lighting among others.

Work tasks are often repetitive,  whether that is for example sitting at a computer typing for hours, standing  at a laboratory bench  using pipettes for academic research, or custodial cleaning and housekeeping -  daily, repeated activities have the potential for injury.

We all know that just seemingly simple tasks such as standing or sitting for long periods of time in itself can be tiring and stressful on the body, well….what can be done?

This website is designed to educate and advise MSU students, faculty and staff in regard to ergonomics and to give practical up-to-date information on how to change your work environment in a way that reduces the risks of injury.
