About Ergoweb®

Every company’s most valuable asset is its people. No one wants to see workers struggle, sacrificing quality, missing deadlines or injuring team members. When employees struggle, businesses fail.

As experts in ergonomics, we know that workspace and process design, and how employees interact with them, drives business outcomes. Ergoweb’s software and services allow companies to invest in their greatest asset by improving and optimizing production environments and processes that advance your business.

Our goal is to grow the value, awareness and influence of ergonomics for our clients and partners by providing them with the ability to create an environment in which employees and their companies thrive, not just survive. 

Our latest innovation, Ergoweb Enterprise℠, is a one-of-a-kind SaaS ergonomics process management system with a continuous improvement workflow. Ergoweb Enterprise℠ can easily be adopted by companies with existing ergonomics processes, or form the basis for creating a new process from scratch. We also offer a blend of support services scaled to your needs, including remote or onsite consulting and training options for all ergonomics knowledge levels, delivered online or at your site. Whether you need a full service approach, a little extra capacity, or help with a challenging problem, Ergoweb has you covered.

Ergoweb was originally established January 1, 1995 to commercialize industrial job assessment software then under development at the University of Utah. As a pioneering web site in the ergonomics category (our first web site was launched in 1993), we were the first to provide software-as-a-service by subscription via the web, and have since grown to be a leader in the ergonomics industry.  

Between 1995 and 2016, Ergoweb supported numerous companies with ergonomics software, training and consulting; published and shared thousands of resources; spun-off a separate company (Ergobuyer LLC) to assist clients with identifying and procuring equipment with genuine ergonomic features; and formed a joint venture, ErgoAdvocate LLC, whose sole product was SaaS and supporting services for office ergonomics. ErgoAdvocate was purchased by MSDSonline (now VelocityEHS) in 2016. 

Ergoweb restructured its operations in early 2017 to narrow its focus on our core business and strengths: workplace ergonomics Software as a Service (SaaS), and ergonomics consulting and training services.
