Ergonomics is the science of designing the workplace human interaction to be as efficient and safe as the limitations of the human body allow. At Texas Tech, this primarily revolves around the office environment (i.e. sitting at a desk) and the majority of ergonomic assessments performed by Environmental Health and Safety involve evaluating office workplaces.
The ergonomics program at Texas Tech provides free, on-site ergonomic assessments for university employees performed by Environmental Health and Safety staff with recommendations for any findings.
