Welcome to The Ergonomics Center!
Our Vision is “To enhance life and performance through the science of ergonomics”
The Ergonomics Center of North Carolina (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 has provided training and consulting services to a wide variety of businesses and industries throughout the United States and Latin America. Many of our clients have been long-standing partners and continue to work with us to improve and enhance the safety of their employees.
