There are many different tools designed to assess ergonomic risk in workplace environments (including Humantech’s BRIEF™ Survey and BEST™ assessment). The website of Dr. Thomas Bernard provides the full spectrum of publically available risk assessment tools. Dr. Bernard, professor and chair of the Environmental and Occupational Health Department at the University of South Florida, wrote the book on ergonomics—literally. He is a co-author of Kodak’s Ergonomic Design for People at Work, and considered one of the leading resources for ergonomics. His website is a great resource to bookmark.
