Ergonomics is the study of work. It is a science that studies people’s physical and mental capacities and limitations, including issues of mobility and work-related stress.
Ergonomics is the science of fitting the job to the worker and has proven important in preventing the types of musculoskeletal injuries that contribute to increasing workplace related disability claims. Ergonomic implementation works to prevent injuries rather than treat them. A complete ergonomics program includes the education about risk factors and causes of injuries, and encourages good habits in posture, body mechanics and exercise at work, at home and at leisure.
