Who We Are
ASSP’s Ergonomics Practice Specialty member community is the premier resource for ASSP members looking for technical knowledge and expertise related to workplace safety and ergonomics, the science of fitting workplace conditions and job demands to the capabilities of the working population. Workplace safety and ergonomics also encompasses issues such as work-related musculoskeletal disorders. We provide a forum for you to network and share best practices relating to ergonomics.
What We Do
For ASSP members within the Ergonomics Practice Specialty, we provide the following:
- Networking opportunities via social media groups, conference calls and in-person meetings like the annual Professional Development Conference so you can connect with top industry professionals
- Professional development opportunities, including ergonomics-focused education that you can immediately put into practice, mentor relationships that facilitate sharing knowledge and volunteer and leadership opportunities to build your skills and enhance your resume
- Safety-related, ergonomics-focused content and information that you can also immediately put into practice, share with employers and colleagues and use to create safe, productive work environments
Why It Matters
Occupational health hazards like repetitive motion, poor lighting, vibration and noise are just a few of the ergonomics-related issues that lead to injuries and illnesses in the workplace. Our members share their real-world guidance and experience to help one another develop or improve ergonomics and work physiology programs for their organizations, and to effectively reduce ergonomic-related injuries in the workplace.
