Abstract
  • Ergonomics has been an evolving and growing field as people understand the importance behind the science of fitting a workstation to a worker and an individual’s quality of life. More research has been completed regarding its cost-effectiveness and positive effects on productivity, making ergonomics attractive to companies. Benefits of the application of ergonomics can include: increased productivity, improved health and safety of workers, lowered workers’ compensation claims, compliances with government standards, job satisfaction, increased work quality, decreased worker turnover, decreased lost time at work, improved morale of workers, and decreased in absenteeism rate (OSHA, n.d.; Fernandez, 1995; Tee et al., 2017). The gap identified through the literature review created the initiative for an Occupational Therapy Doctoral Capstone Project to address ergonomics in a workplace to help increase overall well-being and quality of life. The capstone project used standardized assessments (such as the REBA) to evaluate a workplace on their current, ergonomic state. Using the results from the standardized assessments, sustainable education and resources were provided to address risk factors and prevention wellness within a facility.
