The Blogging Vision of Sierra

The main focus of my blog is to share my passion for helping others recover their health so they can live meaningful lives.

I will address three questions with the Sierra Ergonomics, Inc blog:

-What is an Ergonomist?
-How does a nursing background enhance the services of an Ergonomist?
-How does field case management impact individuals and industries?

According to David J. Osbourne author of the third edition of Ergonomics at Work, “ergonomics is an ever developing science, it’s more than a static idea.”  Chris Adams defines it as: “Ergonomics derives from two Greek words: ergon, meaning work, and nomoi, meaning natural laws, to create a word that means the science of work and a person’s relationship to that work.”  My job as an ergonomist is to facilitate the successful interaction between individuals and their work environments.

I also want to create an outlet of opportunity to educate individuals seeking advice and knowledge in areas of wellness, field case management and ergonomics.
Ergonomics is vastly important for increasing people’s performance, safety and comfort on the job and in their lives.  Ergonomics also offers companies value added features to their most important resource: their personnel.  It is fun, interesting and pertinent throughout the entire age continuum and can improve the lives of adults and children.

Preventing musculoskeletal disorders and pain can be achieved by attention to ergonomic philosophy. With my education and expertise I seek to inform about the advantages of a Nursing background in practicing as an ergonomist as well as share my experiences in this interesting field. My roles as a Nurse and Ergonomist have given me special insights into the dynamic relationship between all aspects of an individual: cultural, emotional, mental health, environmental, and tangible disease processes. I am able to make assessments of an individual based on these factors by using my expertise in the field of health care.

Knowledge is power. The power to sustain a healthier lifestyle can reduce the risk to injury or harm. The power of ergonomics is our ability to use this knowledge to improve our health and well-being.
