Ergonomics is the study of the physiological interaction between the worker and the work environment. The goal of ergonomics is to reduce the risk of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) by adapting the work to fit the person instead of forcing the person to adapt to the work. The term “ergonomics” refers to making the workplace conducive to the comfort and productivity of the employee. Applying office ergonomics principles helps workers avoid on-the-job illness and injury and improves worker satisfaction through measures that provide greater comfort, helping people to perform assigned tasks more naturally.
