Ergonomics is an applied science, concerned with the interaction of people and all aspects of their work environment. The primary aim is to reduce injury and ill-health relating to work activities, through appropriate design.

The benefits of ergonomic design include:

  • Reducing work-related injuries and ill-health
  • Reducing absenteeism and staff turnover
  • Improving efficiency, productivity and morale
  • Avoiding costly mistakes in equipment purchase or workplace design.
