What is Ergonomics?
Ergonomics involves the arrangement of the workplace environment to fit the person’s work. When ergonomics is applied correctly, stress and many potential injuries/disorders associated with the overuse of muscles, bad posture and repeated tasks can be reduced. Palomar Community College District maintains a comprehensive Ergonomic Program that complies with all local, state and federal regulations.
