Cornell Ergonomics

Cornell Ergonomics is a great website with lots of useful office ergonomics information. It patiently explains 'what is ergonomics' if you are a first timer, yet has advanced level ergonomics information, such as how to make ergonomic risk assessments.Here are our favorite ergonomics articles.

Cornell Ergonomics is more or less the brainchild of Professor Alan Hedge (from what I've read). He works in the department of Design and Environmental Analysis at Cornell University

Want an Personal Ergonomic Risk Assessment?

This page is excellent for self-assessing your ergonomic risk factors (if any). The best part is you can "diagnose" starting from your work station or from your "health problem areas" or simply where it hurts.

One thing to know is that this section of Cornell Ergonomics page was constructed by the DEA651 class of 2002 for their class project.

The tips and self-diagnosis are general only, do not promote any specific product or equipment, and it advises you to seek a medical health professional and ergonomic consultant - and not totally rely on this ergonomic risk assessment

Ergonomics For Kids

This is my absolute favorite page and even though it is "for kids", it is a good starting point for all those who are intimidated by "ERGONOMICS" and would like to get started.

It has lots of visual ads, for those are more visual than are readers.

  1. The Adventures of Alice and Allen shows you how to sit comfortably at a computer.

  2. Packerman saves the day - it talks about your children's backpack

  3. And Save Your Eyes - an introduction to preventing eyestrain.
