Ergonomics is the science of fitting the physical work environment to workers’ physical abilities and characteristics.

We encourage all employees to get familiar with our Ergonomics Guideline and to get proactive with Setting up Your Workstation sheet and Office Stretches to prevent occupational musculoskeletal injuries (MSIs).

Included is an Introduction to Office Ergonomics manual informing about:

  • Risk factors contributing to MSIs
  • Low risk computer workstation set up
  • General prevention principles
  • Common problems in office environment

Should you require an ergonomics service please complete the Ergonomic Assessment Request Form and send it to the Facilities Department or email facilities@langara.ca.
