About Us

Welcome to The Ergonomics Center!

Our Vision is “To enhance life and performance through the science of ergonomics”

The Ergonomics Center (Center) is a membership-based organization housed in the Edward P. Fitts Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering at North Carolina State University. We currently have offices in Raleigh, NC, Charlotte, NC, Tulsa, OK, and the Twin Cities, MN.

The Center was founded in 1994 as a partnership between NC State University and the NC Department of Labor. It was created to make workplaces safer, more productive, and more competitive by providing practical, cost-effective ways to reduce or eliminate America’s fastest-growing occupational injury and illness problem: painful, crippling cumulative trauma disorders (CTDs). Our mission is to provide companies with expertise to improve their ergonomics cultures and optimize business performance.

The Center’s Staff are all masters-level engineers and board-certified professional ergonomists , with over 100 combined years of experience. Our staff provides occupational ergonomics consulting, training programs, and research for corporations, facilities, and individuals to support and enhance a company’s ergonomics efforts. Each service is customized to meet an organization’s specific ergonomic needs and corporate goals. With extensive experience in ergonomics research, consulting, and training, we understand the challenges of managing ergonomics and minimizing ergonomic risk factors in today’s work environments.
