Ergonomics is a process of identifying and removing barriers between people and their work environment. The prevalence of Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs) has employers looking for ways to decrease employees' risk for injury. Ergonomic programs have shown to be very positive additions to safety and health programs at the work site. Our Certified Ergonomists can help identify and redesign high-risk jobs that may expose an employee to increased risk for developing an MSD.
SOMC Rehab Services provides on-site ergonomic studies to help employers prevent work-related injuries or development of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs). This service can also help insure the safe return to work for someone recovering from an injury, as well as decrease the chance of a re-injury. Ergonomic programs have been proven effective to help reduce workers compensation costs, increase productivity and morale, and improve the quality of work.
