Ergonomics & Aging

Many ergonomic risk factors are present in the laboratory, including awkward posture, high repetition, excessive force, contact stresses, and vibration. By learning how to control laboratory ergonomic risk factors, you can improve comfort and productivity while lowering chances for repetitive strain injuries.

Many tools used in the lab are not designed properly for the human hand. Electric pipettes and other redesigned tools are available from laboratiory suppliers such as Ranin, VWR and North Coast Medical.

For our recommendations on lab supplies, see the Lab Supplies Products webpage.
