Upstate recognizes the importance of ergonomics and the prevention of work-related musculoskeletal disorders. Upstate leadership is committed to a comprehensive ergonomics program to reduce injury rates, lost work time and to maintain a safe and healthy work environment.
Upstate Ergonomics Program
The Upstate Ergonomics Program was established in 2004 to identify and assess ergonomic hazards and to recommend ways of minimizing or controlling them so that all Upstate employees are kept productive and free of discomfort in their work environment. Ergonomic evaluations and consultations are available to ALL Upstate employees.
An Ergonomic Specialist is an expert on human movement, musculoskeletal function, injury prevention, and how humans function within their environment. An Ergonomic Specialist applies this knowledge to evaluate and alter workspaces to make jobs easier, safer, and more efficient. The Upstate Ergonomics Program is guided by employees with orthopedic and sports medicine backgrounds who identify hazards specific to each individual employee. Upstate Ergonomic Specialists are also available for departmental consultations.
