Ergonomics is defined as the science of equipment design for people to minimise health hazards and maximise productivity. Ergonomics (or human factors) is the scientific discipline concerned with the understanding of interactions among humans and other elements of a system, and the profession that applies theory, principles, data and methods to design in order to optimize human well-being and overall system performance (International Ergonomics Association). In order not to confuse you with complicated definitions by the experts, we can explain it to you in simpler terms. Using workplace ergonomics as an example, it is actually having accessories in your workplace to fit the user for prevention of injuries. These accessories will allow you to be more comfortable in your workplace, thus minimising strains and injuries. For example, a LCD monitor on a workplace desk will never be able to provide correctly the optimal viewing height for the user. The incorrect viewing position would cause strains on the eyes, neck and shoulders. An LCD arm can be used to elevate the LCD monitor to the optimal viewing height for the user.
What is Ergonomics?
How FAM Solutions can help?
The huge increase in work-related injuries demonstrates the physical strain modern jobs put on our bodies. These in turn contribute to the astronomical cost of worker’s compensation programs, workers health and productivity. To put it in simple terms, if you do not practise ergonomics, you would be putting yourself at risk of suffering from muscle-skeletal injury and compromising work quality. These injuries and lowered productivity increases cost. Thus, ergonomics are adopted so that it keeps one healthy, increases productivity and efficiency, maintains quality and boosts the general morale of the work force. In the U.S. alone 1.8 million employees suffer from musculoskeletal injuries related to job performance (U.S. Department of Labour).
