Ergonomics: Why Wellness Matters

The Ergonomics Department supports employees in building healthy lifestyles by establishing programs, practices and resources within the workplace that focus on safety, ergonomics and well-being.  Personal factors such as fitness, stress, sleep, diet, health and safe work practices all have an important impact on injury prevention. Our goal is to promote healthy lifestyles both work and home to help keep staff and their families safe and well.
