On-site ergonomics consultation

You may request an ergonomics consultation at your work site in Washington state. A consultation can help you identify hazards for musculoskeletal disorders and means to reduce them. These services can be used to:

  • Teach employees at your worksite to identify jobs that could cause injury by using one or more on-site job examples.

  • Identify methods and resources to reduce hazards.

  • Start an ergonomics program at your workplace, tailored to the specific needs of your industry.
  • Review an established ergonomics program and suggest modifications, when needed.
