Computer Ergonomics
Elementary School

Welcome to CergoS

Computer Ergonomics is about things that you can do to make working on a computer more comfortable and better for your body. For example, wearing a bike helmet when riding a bike and a seatbelt when riding in a car are two simple things that you do to be safe. The Computer Ergonomics for Elementary School Students (CergoS) Web site will show you some simple and affordable ways to make sure that your body is safe and comfortable while using a computer.

This project was supported by a grant from the Department of Consumer and Business Services, Oregon OSHA. All material at this Web site is free to everyone and can be reproduced.
