ErgoKnow is a set of online ergonomic training and assessment tools for state employees. ErgoKnow contains training video demonstrations and other "hands on" tools that can be used to improve both an understanding of ergonomics and how to apply it. These resources were developed with the assistance of a team of physical therapists with expertise in ergonomics and work-related musculoskeletal disorders. All North Dakota state employees are urged to periodically review these resources and evaluate and adjust their work environment as needed to avoid injury and make their overall work environment more comfortable.
