Design & Equipment Guidelines

Construction Design & Renovation Projects:

It is never too early to involve the ergonomist in your new plan and projects. UCSF Ergonomics & Human Factors assists project management to ensure that UCSF work environments are created to support environmental stewardship, employee safety, health, productivity and efficient movement–often within limited and shared spaces. Contact the senior ergonomist for design consultations, ergonomics design requirements, and any related questions at
