Ergonomics is the study of people at work. By understanding how work affects people both physically and mentally we can design and improve work to ensure the best fit with the user. Ergonomists use data about people to design work processes, reduce the impact on people and improve performance.
Products can also be designed and improved using ergonomic principles to ensure that they are user friendly.
Ergonomics may be used:
- at the design stage
- when purchasing equipment/furniture
- to improve an existing work system
- to identify and resolve issues
- to enable a user with particular issues to work effectively
- to reduce errors
We have all experienced products or work which don’t ‘fit’ and are difficult to use or work with. Contact us on 01593 741754 or complete an enquiry form to discuss how an ergonomic approach can help to improve your work processes.
