“Five Ways to Improve Ergonomics in the Laboratory,” is the title of a new, free e-book released by Humantech earlier this month. The laboratory environment poses unique challenges resulting from the use of specialized equipment. Increasing your awareness of existing and potential ergonomic issues in the lab, knowing how to adjust workstations to fit the employee, and using proper work practices can improve overall comfort, accuracy, and productivity, and reduce the risk for developing musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs).
This e-book highlights the five most common laboratory tasks and will share some best practices that can reduce or eliminate ergonomic risk. It coincides with the launch of Humantech’s new software as a service, Ergopoint® Lab Suite. If you find the e-book helpful please share it!
