Workplace and workstation ergonomics is about designing and organising work so that it fits the individual. If you’ve ever experienced soreness or pain as a result of your job or after working around the home, it’s probably because of poor ergonomics.
By applying ergonomic principles, the health and safety risks associated with your work can be reduced. In this way, good ergonomics promotes both your safety and productivity.
In this video we look at some of the common risks that exist in workplaces because of poor ergonomics. You’ll learn how to identify the ergonomic risks and their causes. You’ll also be introduced to some of the measures that can be used to eliminate or reduce these risks in your workplace.
It’s important to note that it may not always be possible or practical to remove every workplace ergonomic risk, however many poor ergonomic practices can be greatly improved with relatively simple measures.
