Lab Ergonomics Essentials for Risk Reduction and Employee Well-Being

Strategies for Lab Managers and Science Decision Makers Who Need to Know

Proper Ergonomics is Vital to Scientists' Safety and Well-Being

The safety of your scientists is dependent on the lab manager's knowledge and respect for ergonomics. If a gap in this area leaves them vulnerable to injury, mental weariness from constantly being uncomfortable, or even lost productivity - it’s time that you take action!

In this virtual presentation, Alison Heller-Ono, Professional Ergonomist, Physical Therapist, and CEO of Worksite International, Inc. dives deep into the most important aspects of risk reduction using the science of ergonomics.  

In this session, you will:

  1. Recognize why having an active ergonomics program is the difference between a healthy and productive laboratory and a risk-laden one.
  2. Grasp how to identify the ergonomic risk factors that are found in the lab.
  3. Seek out the silent sufferers in the lab by recognizing early signs and symptoms associated with the most common lab injuries.
  4. Take control through posture awareness using the lab chair or stool and lab workstation set up.
  5. Select safe work practices to promote mindful work and well-being for scientists
