The Occupational Ergonomics Laboratory serves as an educational resource to students, faculty, campus personnel, and the community. It is divided into two major sections, an office ergonomics workstation demonstration and design area, and a product design and occupational ergonomics research area. The office workstation design area showcases various ergonomically-designed office products and illustrates ergonomic design to maximize comfort and work performance in the office setting. Visitors, upon appointment, are welcome to try out the various products while in the laboratory to assist them in decision-making prior to purchasing office furniture and products. The product design and occupational ergonomics research area consists of worktables for construction of design models, various ergonomically-designed industrial tools, and physical performance assessment equipment.
