The Ergonomics Institute

The mission of the Ergonomics Institute is to assist organizations in reducing repetitive motion injuries and promoting increased efficiency through worker education and wellness. Athletes know that the correct use of their body is critical to superior performance. The grip used on a tennis racket is the evolution of an enormous amount of critical thinking and experimentation, the results of which can be had for the price of a few simple lessons. For the majority of us, the workplace is the “court” upon which our “game” is played. We have trainers to assist in team building and trainers to help us get fit at the fitness center, but until recently, no training existed regarding maximizing one’s effectiveness using the tools of their trade. Did your chair come with instructions on its correct use to avoid repetitive motion injuries? Did your computer? Everyday jobs could be performed faster and safer with a little knowledge. Invest in your most valuable resource; your employees. Engage the Ergonomics Institute to evaluate your organization and facilitate peak performance in all your employees.
