By implementing better ergonomics within the workplace, the overall efficiency of the workplace will improve. Tasks will become easier for workers because there will be a reduction in the strength exerted on a process, the number of steps in a task, the amount of training needed, etc. An ergonomic environment is a healthy environment—please be ergonomically safe!
Work-Related Musculoskeletal Disorders
Ergonomics is the study of how workers perform their work and how they interact with their workplace. Ergonomics aims at fitting the work environment to the worker; this includes designing equipment/devices to fit the worker and altering job tasks. If workers are exposed to ergonomic hazards, it could lead to the onset of Work-Related Musculoskeletal Disorders (or WMSDs).
