Good Ergo Links

There are many ergonomics-related websites.

Some are basically commercials for a consulting service, but are included here if they also attempt to educate the visitor about ergonomics.

We can't endorse any of them as being either completely up-to-date, complete, accurate, or even guaranteed-to-be-helpful.  Please take the content of any ergonomics publication with a grain of salt.  Nevertheless, we believe all of these sites have merit and some are excellent.

These links are listed in no particular order.

Typing Injury FAQ
Wide-ranging site with a long pedigree, produced over the years  by a variety of people.  Continually improving.
University of Nebraska
Not an official U of Neb site, but produced by folks from there, drawing from Australian as well as North American expertise.
Humanics Ergosystems is a consulting firm with original reports and articles and a wealth of ergonomics resources including workplace ergonomics, ergonomics for children and people with disabilities as well as design of the built environment. Also extensive links to medical research and resources.
Cornell University
Parts of this site consist of  course-related information for Cornell's ergonomics degree programs, but they also post  questionnaires and other tools and summaries of their research projects.
A site in Finland that, at present, is the mother-of-all-ergo-link-lists.  They have included the good, the bad, and the blatantly commercial, but it's interesting to explore.   Caveat emptor.
UCSF/UCB Ergonomics Program tips page
The University of California San Francisco/Berkeley has an ergonomics degree program.   This link goes to the informational / helpful parts of their site.
Yes, OSHA (federal) publishes some ergonomics information.  Mostly press releases.  Informational parts are ... disappointing.  But watch this site for publication of their next take on a national Ergonomics Standard.
A subscription service, with some of their information available for free as samples.   Largely deals with non-office work.  A good place to start getting familiar with industrial ergonomics (i.e. heavy work).
