Laboratory Ergonomics

Due to the nature of your work and research, you are not only exposed to working with daily hazardous materials and substances, but you are also exposed to many ergonomic risks in your labs. Laboratory – associated risks are the same as those that occur in offices, in trades and in general industry. They include working in awkward or sustained postures; using highly repetitive movements, excessive force or strain and vibration.
