Applied Research


Experts working at SRI-Ergonomics are involved in a wide variety of efforts aimed to study workplace, product, and equipment issues that impact not only employee health and safety, but ease-of-use and user acceptance factors as well. 

We use quantitative measurement techniques that leverage accurate and objective data to help businesses and organizations answer practical questions such as:

  • Would new equipment under consideration for purchase actually reduce injury risk among employees? 
  • Which work practice, among several options, best minimizes employee fatigue? 
  • Does a newly designed or modified product significantly reduce user physical demands or improve productivity?

Our team has decades of experience documenting study results for:

  • Use in ergonomics assessment tools and guidelines;

  • Publication in peer-reviewed journals (enabling clients to refer to evidence-based data to support their health & safety initiatives); and

  • Client's proprietary use.

These research-into-practice efforts have helped companies significantly reduce injury rates and improve the usability and marketability of their products and equipment.
