Applied Ergonomics

Focusing on real-world application of ergonomics principles and practices

The field of ergonomics continues to expand. Practitioners in the field have advanced their skills to improve processes in a variety of industries. IISE’s courses focus on the application of principles and processes and draw on real-world experiences.

Take advantage of IISE's applied ergonomics courses to master the basic concepts of ergonomics and the appropriate way to apply the principles in your organization. The applied ergonomics seminars cover the ins and outs of ergonomics — from the history to ergonomics standards and OSHA guidelines. You will learn how to prevent and control back injuries, cumulative trauma and carpal tunnel syndrome. Office ergonomics and the strain index are also addressed. The courses include examples of previous cases and solutions and review of participant videos.
