What is Ergonomics?

“Ergonomics” is a word that we are hearing more and more often and there is a reason for this. Ergonomics, put simply, is the science of how human physical abilities and limitations interact with the layout and properties of the workplace.

It is about designing the workplace and workplace equipment so that it is optimizing the range of human physical movements, and not placing strain on the worker through repetition of movements that strain the body, causing it damage, fatigue, or contribute to the worker not being able to perform properly.

A cursory look at most offices may not reveal much, but a closer inspection may reveal a range of ergonomically unsound practices that could result in injury, stress and loss of income.

All businesses need to be aware of the potential for income loss and staff injury if they do not do an ergonomic assessment.  For a FREE * assessment of your office call Melbourne Office Solutions on 1300 732 418.
