What is Ergonomics?
Ergonomics is the science of fitting the workplace to the worker in order to improve safety, comfort, and efficiency. Ergonomics is not a new science. In fact, the word was first coined in 1857. The goal of ergonomics is to prevent injuries due to repetitive trauma such as back strain and carpal tunnel syndrome.
Good ergonomics is good economics:
A proactive approach to eliminating ergonomics related hazards in the workplace can reduce the risk of injuries and improve your company’s bottom line. We use injury and productivity data to cost justify our recommendations and evaluate interventions to determine the optimal solution. Good workplace design can improve productivity, quality, comfort, morale, job satisfaction as well as health and safety. Eliminating ergonomics related hazards in the workplace can reduce worker’s compensation costs and employee turnover.
