What is Ergonomics?
Simply put, ergonomics is the science that studies how to best make the work environment fit the worker. The goal of ergonomics in the office is to help prevent injury and increase comfort and productivity. To do this, Ergonomists call upon the principles of engineering, biology, architecture, physiology, and psychology in designing and optimizing work systems and environments. Studies have shown that ergonomic improvements result in productivity increases, dramatic increases in worker satisfaction, and a significant decrease in workplace injuries.
