Workplace Ergonomics

Would you like assistance making your work area more comfortable and safe, or have specific job tasks reviewed to prevent injury?  If so, then an ergonomic evaluation may be beneficial to you.  RIT's Department of Human Resources makes these evaluations available to you at no cost.  In addition to ergonomic evaluations, assessments can be performed in material handling, workflow and process improvement.

If you'd like to schedule an appointment or if you have questions regarding these services, please contact Sue Quinn at spqpsn@rit.edu.
