On January 1, 2005, Ergoweb Inc. celebrated our 10-year anniversary as “the place for ergonomicsTM.” From our roots in the Ergonomics and Design group at the University of Utah’s Department of Mechanical Engineering, Ergoweb has become the first place business professionals turn to when they want to find out more about ergonomics. Whether it’s news, information, advice, software, or training and consulting, Ergoweb is the company that can help you make the right decisions in ergonomics.
Since our early days as pioneers of web-enabled ergonomics, emerging as a commercial website on January 1, 1995, Ergoweb has earned a reputation for a number of our “firsts” including:
- launching the first solely web-based ergonomics software system, the Job Evaluator Toolbox (JET) in 1995. Our JET software, which was also one of the earliest forays of any industry into web-based software, continues to be the leading job analysis software suite, with version 4.0 scheduled for release later this month.
- offering the first web-based ergonomics training program, Computer Based Ergonomics Training Course, or CBeT, in 1995.
- developing the first on-line ergonomics buyer’s guide, Ergobuyer
