Be Rewarded for Your Innovative Ergonomics Solutions!

Ergo Cup submissions are being accepted now through November 30, 2014. 

The internationally recognized Ergo Cup® competition was developed to recognize and encourage the development of innovative ergonomics solutions and education in the workplace. The general theme across all five Ergo Cup® categories is innovation, and any solution or educational initiative from within the last 24 months is eligible to compete.

Your organization could win an Ergo Cup, whether your company is large or small! Ergo Cup submissions are judged on whether:

  • The solution is a newly created device or process.
  • The solution was created or significantly improved through study and experimentation.
  • The solution is simple and straightforward.
  • The solution provides an attractive return on investment and explains its financial success.
  • The solution significantly reduces or eliminates ergonomic risk.
  • The quality of the presentation was excellent including problem statement, clear descriptions and metrics with visuals.

The submission deadline is November 30. Visit for FAQs, a list of past winners and an archived webinar on creating a winning Ergo Cup entry!

The Ergo Cup competition is sponsored by the Ergonomics Center of North Carolina and the Edward P. Fitts Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering at North Carolina State University.
