Ergonomics is the science of fitting workplace conditions and job demands to the capabilities of employees. These principles are used to improve the “fit” between the worker and the workplace increasing productivity and well being.
We are fortunate at UMBC to have workplace ergonomic assessments available for faculty and staff.
