What is Ergonomics?
Ergonomics is the field of study of the processes in relationship to human capabilities and interactions in the workplace. Good ergonomics is often something you don’t notice until it’s missing – but once pain related to a poor setup or working postures is present, it becomes a far higher priority!
Why are good ergonomics important?
In this context, prevention really is much quicker, easier and more effective than cure. Being set up to work comfortably in the workplace and at home will assist in maintaining high levels of productivity, avoiding painful and costly employee injuries, and increase worker satisfaction.
