The Ergonomics Practice Specialty serves as a resource of technical information and program management practices on occupational ergonomics. Ergonomics is “The science of fitting workplace conditions and job demands to the capabilities of the working population. Ergonomics is an approach or solutions to deal with a number of problems – among them are work-related musculoskeletal disorders.” (NIOSH, 1997). The Practice also provides members opportunities to network, and share best practices.
