An ergonomics evaluation is when  an Ergo Advocate or EHS Ergo Team member partners  with you 1:1 to help you optimize  the safety and comfort of your work area. You can request an ergo evaluation any time for any of your work locations... office, lab or shop.  We  especially encourage employees to report discomfort early and request an ergo evaluation right away.
