Bay Area Ergonomics was founded by Susan Macdonald and provides expert Ergonomic Consulting services to clients in the San Francisco Bay area, including Marin, the North Bay, the East Bay, and the South Bay (including all of Silicon Valley).
Susan Macdonald's method is to never assess a workstation alone, but to assess a client’s postural and biomechanical habits within his or her workstation, and make changes to both of these elements.
Bay Area Ergonomics is not an equipment vendor and has no external incentive to recommend equipment. Susan tries to find available equipment in the workplace to set up workstations whenever possible. When an item is not available, she has an excellent network of equipment vendors.
We welcome jobs of any size. Please call us for a complimentary telephone consultation at (415) 225-4667.
