“Ergonomics” is a term that we hear quite often in the workplace, but what does it actually mean?
Ergonomics comes from two Greek words: “ergon,” meaning work, and “nomoi,” meaning natural laws. It is the science of designing equipment and workplaces to fit different user needs by matching the job to the worker, rather than vice versa. Ergonomics individualizes workers’ capabilities and limitations within the workplace, and tailors equipment and workspaces accordingly.
The most serious ergonomic risk factors are found in jobs that require repetitive, aggressive, or lengthy exertions of the hands; continual heavy lifting; or extended sitting in static positions. Jobs with multiple risk factors are more likely to cause musculoskeletal problems such as carpal tunnel syndrome.
So what are the benefits? The primary advantage of ergonomics and work environments is the long and short-term safety of employees. This ultimately reduces costs by lessening the amount of money that may otherwise pay for worker’s compensation. Ergonomic tools such as screwdrivers and wire cutters also help improve efficiency in the workplace by simplifying everyday tasks, which in turn increases productivity.
Interested in making your workspace or home office more ergonomically-friendly? Ergonomically designed chairs are a good place to start!
