The Office of Environmental Health and Radiation Safety (EHRS) would like to introduce the newly revised Ergonomics @ Penn web page, available on the EHRS web site. The goal of the web page is to provide the Penn community with tools to evaluate their workstations or jobs and make changes that will help prevent injury from occurring. The web page includes information about common repetitive stress injuries and their causes, examples of stretches that can be done at work and information specific to computer, laboratory and manual handling tasks.
The web page is available at www.ehrs.upenn.edu under the heading “EHRS Resources” or by clicking on “Ergonomics” in Penn A-Z.
