Ergonomic Assessments (ERGOS) are designed to evaluate specific employee and work environment dynamics in order to improve long term worker health and safety while performing their usual and customary occupation.
Adoption of appropriate ergonomic practices, work-site injuries and related disabilities are significantly reduced, while realizing improvements in work productivity, quality and employee job enjoyment.
CAL-OSHA regulation 5110 under the California Labor Code, section 6357, notes the importance of implementing employer-based ergonomic programs which include work-site evaluations, the control of ergonomic (ERGO) hazards and employee education and training.
