Our faculty and leadership are composed of academics, engineers, and professionals who have years of experience researching, teaching and consulting on the prevention of occupational injuries.

Through on campus classes, online classes and various workshops, this group of individuals ensures that we have well trained and supported students, researchers and practitioners here and abroad. One aspect of the core faculty’s reputation and strength is the extramural support obtained. Research grants, gifts, and consultation services provide approximately 90% of the funding support for the Ergonomics Program.
