Ergonomics Frequently Asked Questions

What is ergonomics?

Ergonomics, often referred to as human factors or human engineering, is the scientific discipline that studies the interactions between humans and their environment, with a primary focus on designing systems, products, and environments that optimize human well-being and overall performance.

Why is workplace ergonomics important?

  • Ergonomics is crucial for several reasons, as it directly impacts the well-being and productivity of individuals in various settings.
  • It focuses on designing workspaces for individual employees to reduce the risk of developing musculoskeletal disorders, such as back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, and neck strain.
  • It promotes optimal working conditions by increasing comfort and reducing discomfort, allowing individuals to maintain higher levels of concentration and productivity over extended periods.
  • It improves job satisfaction, as comfortable and well-designed workspaces contribute to employee satisfaction and morale, reducing absenteeism and turnover rates.
  • It boosts productivity by streamlining work processes and aligning tools and equipment with human capabilities, resulting in improved efficiency and performance.
  • It reduces healthcare costs by preventing workplace injuries and health issues related to poor workspace design, leading to reduced healthcare expenses and workers’ compensation claims.
  • It accommodates all employees by considering the diverse needs of individuals, taking into account factors such as height, weight, and physical abilities, ensuring that workspaces are adaptable to a wide range of employees.

What are ergonomics risks?

  • What many people refer to as “ergonomic risks” are actually musculoskeletal disorder (MSD) risks. MSDs are soft-tissue injuries caused by long-term exposure to repetitive motion, force, vibration, and awkward positions. We use the principle of ergonomics to assess jobs and workspaces for MSD risk and implement positive changes to fit the workspace to the worker, greatly reducing their likelihood of developing an MSD.
  • The most common risks for developing MSDs are high force, awkward posture, and long duration or high frequency.
