Importance of Ergonomics
- 6 Months ago
Ergonomics is practiced almost every day without an individual even realizing it. For instance, think of the first thing that you do when you get into your car to drive. You inevitably adjust your seat, rear mirrors and steering wheel according to your physical comfort. By unknowingly practicing these small things prior to driving, you seek the least tiring way to use your muscles and the most comfortable position that will enable you to focus on driving.
The same principle applies to your workplace. The posture of every individual should be optimized so that the least amount of pressure is exerted on muscles and joints, helping the individual focus only on productive work. This is what ergonomics is all about.
