Welcome to SRI-Ergonomics! As a branch of the Spine Research Institute, we continue a long tradition of ergonomics / human factors education, research, and industry partnerships at Ohio State, emphasizing an interdisciplinary approach to work system design. Our unique organization allows us to not only conduct state-of-the art ergonomics research but to then translate that knowledge to the direct benefit of our clients.
When ergonomics principles are applied correctly and systematically, workplace injuries are reduced or eliminated. But ergonomics also increases productivity, efficiency, and employee job satisfaction, in addition to reducing turnover, absenteeism, and simply the physical discomfort of those doing work.
Consultants at SRI-Ergonomics are dedicated to the application of ergonomics and workplace biomechanical principles to ensure that job tasks, equipment, and consumer products are both safe and effective at improving the work environment. Our subject matter experts assist those across occupational environments, including manufacturing, distribution, and office settings.
