What is Ergonomics in the workplace?
Ergonomics is the science of designing the workplace, keeping in mind the capabilities and limitations of the worker. Ergonomics reduce risk factors that lead to injuries and increases performance and productivity in the workplace.
Why do we need Ergonomics in the office environment?
Do you feel comfortable at work? Or, do you feel tired, stiff and agitated at the end of the day? This can be caused by poor ergonomics in the workplace. Poor ergonomics can be described as the lack of unity between equipment, environment, and task.
Ergonomics does not only apply to office environments, but it has an extremely big effect on office workers. Poor workplace design can cause you to feel frustrated, hurt and fatigued. In turn, it affects your productivity and quality of work. By improving your workplace environment, you are effectively maximizing productivity.
What are the benefits of ergonomics in the office environment?
Ergonomics in the office environment not only creates a safer and healthier work environment but it also helps you:
● Improve focus
● Improve productivity
● Improve the quality of work
● Boost morale
What are the effects of poor office ergonomics?
In an office setting, you may find yourself sitting for about 8 and 12 hours a day. If your office has poor Ergonomics, this can cause a number of musculoskeletal injuries in your muscles, ligaments, nerves, and tendons.
Ergonomic injuries are often referred to as (along with other names) Repetitive Stress Injuries (RSIs), Cumulative Trauma Disorders (CTDs) and Musculoskeletal Disorder (MSD). Below are some of the symptoms of Ergonomic injuries.
