Ergonomics at DOE JGI
U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Joint Genome Institute (JGI) Ergonomics Program aims to address ergonomics risks in the laboratories.
Laboratory's can be unfriendly areas when it comes to ergonomics. Laboratory tasks can include awkward postures, precision work with hands, reaching, and bending forward.
DOE JGI does it again! DOE JGI wins the prestigeous Ergo Cup for the second time. Our winning entry, "Empowering Employees in Ergonomics," won the Cup in the Ergonomic Program Improvement Initiatives category. Our booth was set up like a farmers market to symbolize the various 'fresh' ingredients of our program that come together to create a 'healthy' safety culture. See below for more exciting details and photos.
