Who We Are

Our journey began in 2005 with the desire and unique ability to help companies create comprehensive, cost-effective ergonomics programs. Individual office assessments were our primary focus, but it soon became clear that our community had a greater ergonomic need and we needed to scale our services.  Over the last 23 years,  Performance Ergonomics has grown to deliver 360 workplace solutions, ergonomic training courses, industrial ergonomic solutions, and early onsite intervention programming. We continue to listen, serve, and adapt to the needs of our community as we focus on improving workplace safety, health, and productivity.

We’ve streamlined our process from initial evaluation to equipment, delivery, and installation services. All recommended products are highly scrutinized to ensure quality and efficacy. We offer a 30-day demo of our solutions to take the guesswork out of your equipment purchase.
