"Ergonomics programs work. They reduce injuries. They improve employee morale. And they save money for employers."
What is Ergonomics?
Ergonomics is the science of adapting a workstation so that your body can be in the most optimal position to be comfortable and productive. Ergonomic tools or products allow you to work without pain by minimizing pressure from incorrect body positioning; these tools are an important step in removing any unwelcome pressures and provides more energy and productivity.
Ergonomics provides the complete workplace solution for your working environment. It provides a neutral position for the computer work space user to maintain the integrity of the body's natural position. What are some of the means for assessing ergonomic needs?
