UW-Madison provides a variety of ergonomic services free-of-charge to campus employees. Our goal is to help you provide a safe environment that minimizes injury potential, decreases Cumulative Trauma Disorders, Workers' Compensation expenses, increases productivity, and ensures a healthier work environment. UW Madison Ergonomic Services will help identify ergonomic risks as well as offer solutions to reduce ergonomic “red flags” and reduce repetitive stress injuries (RSIs) and other musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs). Through our ergonomic consultations, potential injuries and disorders may be reduced, prevented and even eliminated.
