Ergonomic Assist Systems and Equipment (EASE) is the resource for trends, information, practices, equipment, and organizations that focus on ergonomics and improving the working interface between people and the materials they must move and use to reduce injury, increase productivity while providing a significant return on investment.
Ergonomic equipment promotes the general safety and health aspects of work environments for people with or in the vicinity of mechanical equipment. Such equipment includes Adjustable Worker Elevation Platforms, Balancers, Containers Tilters, Lift Tables, Manipulators, Pallet Rotators, Stackers, Vacuum Assist Devices, platform trucks, carts, flooring technologies, Workstation Cranes and Intelligent Assist Devices.
EASE members meet regularly to review, discuss and revise the standards for the mechanical, structural and electrical design of ergonomic equipment, and to formulate guidelines for the proper use, operation and maintenance of that equipment.
EASE Programs Include:
The mission of the Ergonomic Assist Systems and Equipment (“Council”) is to broadly promote the benefits of ergonomic assist systems and equipment together with the advantages derived from, and the considerations for, the use of this equipment in the workplace. It is also the mission of the Council to promote the general safety and health aspects of work environments for people with or in the vicinity of mechanical equipment.
