Pacific Ergonomics provides ergonomic assessments for laboratories of all types. This includes San Diego labs that work with hoods, research and development, incubator, clinical and medical laboratories, biosafety, clean rooms and pharmacies.
Why Evaluations are Important in Labs to Prevent Musculoskeletal Disorders
OSHA has stated that laboratory workers are at risk for repetitive motion injuries during routine laboratory procedures such as: pipetting, working at microscopes, operating microtomes, using cell counters and keyboarding at computer workstations.
Working in awkward postures in laboratory hoods can create ergonomic problems. Working with heavy lab equipment that sits on tables that are not height adjustable can also create reaching and awkward postures that lead to problems.
The great news is that small changes in the workplace, education, training for effective postures and slight changes in proceses can help protect lab employees and protect companies from increased Workers Comp Claims.
